|Quitovac L5 Meteorite |
The Quitovac meteorite is an L5 chondrite with some extraordinarily large chondrules which are seen rarely. The weathering state of the meteorites varies based on the deposition of the stone with some showing very fresh gray interiors while others show more weathering having interiors showing areas of brown matrix mixed with the gray. Quitovac is an attractive meteorite and in recent years fewer new finds from Mexico have been appearing on the market.
