In 2000 two small pieces of iron were collected in the Agoudal area, High Atlas Mountains, Morocco. Later in September 2011, one piece was sold to a dealer who recognized it as an iron meteorite. Since then many more pieces have been collected. Type IIAB iron meteorites are also called hexahedrites. Hexahedrites are low nickel iron meteorites certainly among the rarest of the iron meteorites. Most of these irons are fragments and display beautiful character and patina, ranging in size from a few grams to slightly larger than 1kg. Most of the irons recovered weigh in at under 100g.

 
When cut and etched, some specimens display wonderful Neumann lines and Schreibersite inclusions.
