Chinga Meteorite


The Chinga Meteorite was found in the Chinga river bed in Tanna Tuva, Turvinskaya, Russia in 1911 (north of present day Mongolia).  Chingas are a rare type of iron meteorite known as an ataxite. Ataxites have a very high nickel content (Chinga meteorite contain 16% nickel!).  This high nickel content results in a lack of any visible Widmanstatten pattern, and Chinga meteorites polish into a beautiful mirror like finish. An ancient pre-Buddist statue discovered by the Nazis in the 1930's was recently found to have been carved from a Chinga meteorite (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-19735959). As you may have discovered if you have been looking for Chinga meteorites on the internet, quality Chinga meteorites are becoming very difficult to find.
