classified as an ordinary chondrite, LL6/. A bright fireball
followed be a meteorite shower was observed to fall near
Benguerir (~50 kilometers due north of Marrakech) by villagers.
The fall had an east-to-west trajectory. The estimated total

I bought this stone, in
Morocco a few months after the fall. It is the best large piece
I have seen of this meteorite..
