Nantan County, Guangxi, China
This meteorite is part of the Nantan fall, and shows the characteristic angular form and strong crystal lines of such meteorites. Adding to its aesthetics is that the crevices have oxidized to black hematite, yielding a strong contrast to the bright metallic appearance of the polished Nantan meteorite. All of the crystal edges are at 120 degree angles, even the relatively flat bottom displays this angle against a small pyramid shaped section on the top.
