A unique meteorite as a gift

May we introduce? Tafassasset, the latest acquisition for our meteorite collection. From now on you can visit the extraterrestrial rock, which was found in the Ténéré desert (Niger), in display case 55 in Room V. This special object was donated to the NHM Vienna by the finder Bernard Dejonghe.
