MTR118 Gau-Guenie Meteorite


Gau-Guenie Meteorites come from an observed fall on March 5, 1960 over Burkina Faso in northwest Africa, where the sound was heard over 60 miles away. Originally thought to be two falls, Gau and Guenie, they were determined to be from the same original meteor and their names combined in the late 90s. These typically have excellent fusion crust, one of the most distinguishing visible features between meteorites and terrestrial rocks. This piece has one edge that has been ground and polished.
