Meteorites from Northwest Africa represent the tapping of one of the richest deposits of extraterrestrial matter on earth, second only (possibly) to Antarctica.  For thousands of years, meteorites have been falling onto the semi-arid regions we now call Morocco and Algeria.  Due to the native climate and geology, it is relatively easy to find these meteorites there (compared to most other places on earth). 

These pristine pieces of the solar system's past are still few and far between, and the stones below represent the largest known pieces of individual meteorite falls that occured in NWA hundreds or thousands of years ago. 

I chose these stones for their aesthetics; all make for very nice hand-samples of extraterrestrial matter.

409.294 gram oriented stone - $800

This stone is 95%+ complete.  It displays some feathering on the leading edge and the trailing edge is covered by a thick, warty crust.  The only missing portion of the stone consists of 1-2 small flakes on the trailing edge (see left of center of photos 4 & 5), which are desert-varnished and may be from entry.  The entire leading face and edge of the stone is intact.  Great flow features and shape.
