You can speak of extraterrestrial material that a research team from the University of Alberta came across. The two newly discovered minerals that do not occur on earth are connections made of iron, phosphorus and oxygen. El-Ali meteorite is the “site” “every time you find a new mineral, this means that the actual geological conditions, the chemistry of the rock, were different from what was found so far,” explained team leader Chris Herd In an press release from the university. "This makes things so exciting: In this special meteorite there are two officially described minerals that are new to science." The meteorite mentioned is the EL-Ali meteorite, which was found in Somalia, near the Ethiopian border. With its more than 15 tons of weight, it is one of the heaviest found meteorites on Earth. According to the futurezone, it is unclear how long the meteorite is on earth; It would be conceivable for decades. New names for the new minerals Both new discoveries also got names: The first mineral with the sum formula Fe9PO12 is called Elaliit, named after the meteorite location. The second mineral was named after the planetary researcher Lindy Elkins Tanton and is called Elkinstantonite. Its formula is Fe4 (PO4) 2o. The new minerals could also be classified so quickly because the structure of the structure is two synthetically resembled connections in the laboratory.

Found information on third mineral also pointed out that all new mineral discoveries may have new uses in the future. "Whenever a new material is known, material scientists are also interested in the potential use in a variety of things," he said. The work of the research team has not yet been completed, because it also found indications of at least a third new mineral. How the meteorite itself continues is still unclear. Herd has received information according to which the meteorite was searched for potential buyers: inside to China. It is also uncertain whether further rehearsals for scientific purposes can be found.
