The Sahara EH3 pieces were found in the Sahara
Desert in 1997. So far, many pieces have been found with a TKW of around 28
kilos. Each of the pieces found were given an individual number. The
different numbers below are from different stones, but from the same fall.
This fall is the only EH3 that has been found outside of Antarctica. EH3
meteorites were formed in an oxygen poor region and as a result it is believed
that they formed inside the orbit of planet Mercury. Lines on background
of part slices are 1/4 inch apart.
