Zagami - Martian Shergottite 1.2 grams

Photo Credit: Spacerox .net - Zagami is a typical shergottite – a cumulate basalt with oriented pyroxene crystals, suggesting it crystallized out of molten magma and accumulated in a magma chamber as it cooled. It is probably from beneath the surface of Mars, perhaps bedrock blasted out by the crater forming impact.
