Bendegó meteorite fragment, the 16th largest meteorite in the world. It is classified as a coarse IC octahedrite. In the image it is possible to see its fusion crust already well oxidized due to the years of terrestrial weathering to which it was subjected until it was found. Image Credit: André Moutinho
