ATACAMAITE 1.06g > Pirate Gun Shaped!
Beaded Atacamaite, top AAA from Atacama Chile
Size 22mm x 8mm
I was lucky to find, during my last meteorite trip in September 2014 with my brother Jim, a part of this new strewn field of tektites in Chile. So for the first time, you can acquire some Atacamaites. Buy from the source!
The name Atacamaite is a provisional name. As Pierre Rochette noticed: "This is a newly discovered tektite-like field from Atacama desert; first finds in 2012 by M. Warner; dedicated field work in 2013 by CEREGE (CNRS/Aix Marseille University) and Pontificia Universidad Catolica de Chile; independent finds by L. Labenne in 2014".
