NWA Meteorite in Collector's Box
The most common meteorite recovered from the Sahara is Northwest Africa 869 (NWA 869). The naming convention for Saharan meteorites is not the typical scheme based on the closest post office box. These meteorites are found in the middle of the desert near no post office! So a numbering system used by the Meteoritical Society incorporates the order of recovery for specimens and their GPS locations.
The NWA 869 strewn field, first found in 2000 and classified as an ordinary chondrite (L4-6), has produced around 2 tons of specimens. Whole meteorites, end pieces, and slices range from less than 1 gram in mass to greater than 20 kilograms.
