Meteoric mineral or product of lightning?
Outer space is riddled with mysteries that mankind has not yet been able to unravel during its existence. Alongside the unsolved mysteries, where we will have to make do with theories alone, there are the tangible pieces of the puzzle that fall on the surface of our home planet. I'm referring, of course, to meteorites. Mysteries in general have interested me since I was a kid, and even though I'm already slowly getting into cosmic mineralogy, meteorites, their formation, origin and composition are still a great fascination to me. For my third article on RuniverzuM, I decided to focus on the mineral Schreibersite, which is mainly found in meteorites.
