Meteorite thin sections 2

These stunning Meteorite thin sections by astronomy photographer Jeff Barton, director of Sciences at Cowell, Texas’s Three Rivers Foundation, are collected since 2004.

Meteorites actually look like dark volcanic rocks. But Barton cut them in sections to show their beautiful inner part.



These images are from the Allende Meteorites, which forfeited on Chihuahua, Mexico in 1969.
