Have you seen this fascinating glass or vitreous (V) type micrometeorite, NMM 1116?
Measuring approximately 0.3 mm, it features not one, but two nickel-iron beads surrounded by sulfide rims! Its spectacular green color is due to traces of the iron cation, Fe2+.
The stone was found in the rain gutter of a hotel yours truly, Jon Larsen, visited called Risør Hotel in Risør, Norway. It was a delightful stay and I would definitely recommend it for those who are looking to enjoy a beautiful, quaint town. Nearby, there are delicious restaurants, a lovely harbor, and an aquarium.
I cannot resist searching for micrometeorites everywhere I go! Have any recommendations?
