Oriented Chondrites


Oriented meteorites form when a meteorite do not tumble during its atmospheric trip. As it stabilizes it continues its rotation, the ablation results in a shield form with usualy is flat on the reverse. Sometimes the orientation of the meteorite accumulate boiling rock on the back of the stone witch result on the formation of a thick deposit with many bubbles in the melt oriented meteorite, we call that bubbling in our descriptions. oriented meteorites are very rare and only few collections own a real oriented specimens. Here are some very nice oriented chondrites:
