New Mineral Discovered in Ancient Meteorite


Evidence has allowed for the scientific community to discover a new mineral that was found within an Ancient Meteorite in an unknown location of our universe. Named the Wedderburn Meteorite, it was first located in 1952 in Australia. The space rock weighed 210-grams, which would’ve been considerably more significant if the atmosphere hadn’t broken it apart. Numerous scientists throughout the decades have used the technologies at hand to decipher the Wedderburn Meteorite, with more evidence recently being discovered. The Caltech Mineralogist Group released a new study that proved this specialized Meteorite maintained the element “Edscottite.” Before this evidence, the mineral was entirely human-made and wasn’t ever located in nature.

It’s estimated that one-third of this rock maintains from the original incarnation. It is distinctively red, with black nuisances that create an ominous vibe. The various research times that have examined this Meteorite have cut through this space rock, allowing for multiple groups to research it worldwide. Analyses revealed numerous minerals like Iron, Gold, Taenite, Schreibersite, Troilite, and Kamacite. Acknowledging that it maintains Edscottite is now causing additional questions, where answers cannot be provided. It’s one of the rarest minerals on the synthetic level and has technological purposes that could advance our society tenfold. Discovering this Meteorite’s creation process would prompt technological discoveries on a significant scale.

Synthetic Minerals

What is known is that the discovery of Edscottite proves that at some point in nature, an Atomic Formulation was maintained with Iron Carbide Minerals. It’s significant because this is the pre-requisite required for Edscottite to be recognized as an official mineral by the International Mineralogical Association. It’s also known that the synthetic version of the Edscottite Mineral has been created for decades with the production of Iron Melting. Most minerals used in our everyday society of synthetically produced, with few of them being seen in nature.

The International Mineralogical Association noted that there had been 600,000.00 thousand minerals created synthetically in laboratories. However, out of this considerable percentage of synthetically produced minerals, only six thousand have been located in nature. Planetary Scientists are now debating on how this mineral could’ve formed in nature. They’ve determined that it was created in a universal system that was overheated and pressurized. This would’ve mimicked the symptoms of Iron Smelting. The only way this Meteorite could’ve made its way to Earth is be facing a cosmic collision on a colossal scale. Numerous tests are now being completed by these Planetary Scientists to uncover the secrets of our universe.
