Djoumine

For Sale

      At 7pm on 31 October 1999 a bright fireball was seen traveling from SW to NE, accompanied by multiple detonations.  Two meteorites were recovered by children near the village of Djoumine, Banzart, Tunisia. At least five other pieces were recovered at a later time within a 4-km long strewn field, with the total mass being ~10 kg.   Djoumine is classified as a H5-6 chondrite with a shock stage of S3.   There are areas that are light gray and others that are whiter.  I drew a couple lines on the 5.72 gram piece separating a couple of these areas so you can see the difference.
