Name:   Micrometeorite
Copyright:   Copyright 2009 Dennis Kunkel Microscopy, Inc.
Description:   Caption: Micrometeorite collected from the sandy shores of the eastern United States. Micrometeorites are small microscopic particles (<2mm) of rock from space (chondrites) that have survived entry in to the earth's atmosphere. They range from unmelted particles that retain much of their original mineralogy to totally melted cosmic spherules of which most have lost a significant portion of their mass by vaporization. They formed when various types of dust and small grains, that were present in the early solar system, accreted to form primitive asteroids. They date back to the origin of the solar system. Micrometeorites can be easy found on sandy beaches by dragging strong magnets over the sand. Once collected the small meteorite fragments can be sorted out from other contaminating iron particles
Magnification*: x59
Type: SEM
    *(Magnifications are based on a 35mm slide image of 24mm in the narrow dimension.)
