NWA 7034 (Martian Basaltic Breccia) || found 2011, Morocco

The internationally famous “Black Beauty” NWA 7034 is a unique type of Martian meteorite, unlike the other Mars rocks, it is a fragment of the Martian crust. It contains ancient Martian water (6,000 ppm), providing evidence that the mete­orite inter­acted with Mar­t­ian sur­face–or ground-water 2.1 bil­lion years ago.

Furthermore, noble gases that have been measured in NWA 7034 are a match for the NASA Viking Lander measurements of Martian atmosphere.

This mete­orite is unlike any­thing I’ve ever seen before” – Dr. Carl Agee, head researcher at the University of New Mexico
