The Zag meteorite fell in
Southern Morocco on August 4th or 5th 1998. It is a very nice brecciated
H3-6 chondrite. This beautiful chondrite is very rare, one of only two
meteorites (Zag and Monahans 1998) that are known to contain purple
Halite (salt) crystals! These salt crystals contain water, LIQUID WATER,
Monahans made world news by having a large purple salt crystal with a bubble of
water that was visible.
Most Zag pieces recovered
were large broken fragments. I have a source who collects meteorites
in that area who got me a few nice small complete pieces. Below are
some of the best, I have pulled them from my own collection. You can
find Zag Cheaper, but you won't find better quality pieces! These will
increase in value in the years to come!
