CI Asteroid Simulant

$9.00

This material has been engineered to be chemically and mechanically similar to asteroids, and was based on the Orgueil astroid.  

Orgueil is a scientifically significant carbonaceous chondrite meteorite that fell in southwestern France in 1864. Orgueil is one of five known meteorites belonging to the CI chondrite group, and is the largest (14 kilograms (31 lb). This group is remarkable for having a composition that is essentially identical to that of the sun, excluding gaseous elements like hydrogen and helium. Because of its extraordinarily primitive composition and relatively large mass, Orgueil is one of the most-studied meteorites.

To be clear, this is not from the Asteroid, but it is based on the the composition of Orgueil.
