Lot 4011: Dar El Kahal Meteorite Slice
18th October 2018
Attractive Dar El Kahal chondrite meteorite slice, found in Mali, Africa in 2013. The full slice weighs 126 grams and measures approximately 125 mm x 90 mm x 4 mm. A strewnfield roughly 10 km in diameter produced about 85 kg of fragments and individuals, with an average weight of perhaps a few hundred grams. Only a couple of larger masses were recovered and this excellent full slice comes from one of them. The slice has a medium polish on one face and a protective coating on the other, giving a particularly nice, glossy finish. It is a very attractive, showy piece, with abundant, shiny metal flakes that make for impressive display. Accompanied by a certificate of authenticity signed by Geoff Notkin of Aerolite Meteorites Inc. and the TV show Meteorite Men, as well as a specimen identification card.
