I love the stony nature of these Meteorites: they're pitted, bumpy and oxidized... I've often wondered if they're pieces of a planet that collided with another or perhaps exploded! Wherever they came from, they're beautiful, dark and mysterious pieces of the Universe that you can carry in your pocket! Each Chondrite is unique, no two pieces are alike!

According to Wikipedia, "Chondrites are stony (non-metallic) Meteorites that have not been modified due to melting or differentiation of the parent body. They are formed when various types of dust and small grains that were present in the early solar system accreted to form primitive Asteroids. They are the most common type of Meteorite that falls to Earth with estimates for the proportion of the total fall that they represent varying between 85.7% and 86.2%. Their study provides important clues for understanding the origin and age of the Solar System, the synthesis of organic compounds, the origin of life or the presence of water on Earth. One of their characteristics is the presence of Chondrules, which are round grains formed by distinct minerals, that normally constitute between 20% and 80% of a Chondrite by volume."
