1.05 gram part slice with fusion crust !!!

The Governador Valadares meteorite was found in 1958 in Minas Gerais, Brazil.   The small stone only weighed 158 grams and much of this weight has been lost over the years due to cut loss and scientific testing.  This is by far the rarest of the Mars meteorites.
