Green meteorite may have rare cosmic origins

It’s a first for astronomers.

A newly discovered green meteorite, dubbed NWA 7325, may have arrived from the planet closest to the sun, according to scientists. Speaking earlier this week, astronomers say they now believe a rare greenish meteorite is the first ever discovered from Mercury. The green rock, discovered in Morocco last year, is under examination by a group of scientists at the University of Washington. The findings were presented during the 44th annual Lunar and Planetary Science Conference in The Woodlands, Texas.

The space rock, which scientists estimated to be around 4.56 billion years in age, is thought to have arrived on Earth after being blasted off the surface of Mercury. While the evidence collected by scientists seems to point to Mercury as the planet of origin, they hinted that it may have also come from an unknown body in the solar system...

Considering the speed of Mercury, this green meteorite was most likely delivered via express mail.  ;)

  :) That would be the fickle Mercury himself ...

It is obviously a piece of New Krypton.
