Murchison Meteorite - 9.74g

Murchison Meteorite - 9.74g

On September 28, 1969, a streak of fire over Victoria, Australia broke up into three parts, scattering pieces across a strewn field of five square miles. To those that observed the fall, they could only guess at the fantastic age of this unusual space rock, and the secrets to life in the Solar System encased within.ย 

This specimen comes from the Murchison meteorite and weighs 9.74 grams. The meteorite contains the oldest material found on Earth, dated to around 7 billion years ago, older than both the Earth and Sun. Within it are also ancient amino acids, the earliest known precursors to life in the Solar System.
