Lot Details
Gujba Meteorite Slice
CBa Carbonaceous bencubbinite
Yobe, Nigeria

Gujba is widely considered to be one of the most beautiful meteorites in the world, with huge brecciated silicate and metal globules and dark fragment-rich matrix. A stunning and unique appearance is created by the reddish oxide and cream, grey, red, black and brown colors of the silicates against the bright metal spheroids. A distinctive characteristic of these meteorites is the presence of large, irregular white inclusions called CAIs (Calcium-Aluminum Inclusions), which are among the oldest material in the solar system. The fall date of this fascinating meteorite is April 3, 1984. A superb slice of this rare and beautiful meteorite is offered.
