Chinga
Meteorite Type: Iron
, Ungrouped
Structural Classification: Ataxite
Location:  
Tanna Tuva, Tunvinskaya, Russia
Found: 1913
Total Known Weight:  ~254 kg

Chinga is an Ataxite that is typically polished, not etched, due to it's lack of a Widmanstatten pattern. When etched, though, it displays beautiful flowing "bands" throughout the specimen. Very unique and interesting!  
These are known as Shiller Bands.
