The Taza meteorite (NWA 859) is a rare Saharan Iron that was first
discovered in Morocco in 2001 near the town of Taza. It is very stable
and renowned for it gorgeous sculpted appearance and stunning fine star-like
Windmanstatten patterns. (For Beautifully Etched Taza and other Meteorites Click Here).
Taza meteorites are classified as a rare type of nickel-rich meteorite known as a
plessitic octahedrite. Demand for these beautiful meteorites has
skyrocketed in the last year or two as more and more people have realized
just how beautiful these Saharan irons are. As a result, demand has
outstripped the supply with the result that Tazas are becoming quite difficult
to obtain and prices have been increasing. We cherry picked these wonderful Tazas to provide our customers with an opportunity
to own some of the best examples available of these superb meteorites.
