NEW Bingol (Howardite) || fell September 5, 2015, Turkey
This extraordinary fall was tracked by NASA satellites as it entered the atmosphere. The original meteor was estimated to be 50 cm, from the asteroid Vesta 2309. It fragmented at an altitude of about 40 km. 241 stones of been recovered so far.
The internationally famous “Black Beauty” NWA 7034 is a unique type of Martian meteorite, unlike the other Mars rocks, it is a fragment of the Martian crust. It contains ancient Martian water (6,000 ppm), providing evidence that the meteorite interacted with Martian surface–or ground-water 2.1 billion years ago.
Furthermore, noble gases that have been measured in NWA 7034 are a match for the NASA Viking Lander measurements of Martian atmosphere.
“This meteorite is unlike anything I’ve ever seen before”
– Dr. Carl Agee, head researcher at the University of New Mexico
Berthoud(Eucrite) ||fell October 5, 2004, Colorado; 960 grams total weight
After hearing a wooshing sound and a thud, a couple noticed an area where dust kicked up in a near by horse pen. They went to investigate and recovered a beautifully crusted 960 gram complete stone from a shallow impact pit.
Santa Vitoria do Palmar (L3) ||found 2003, Brazil||
A large 2.340 kg end cut of the chondrule-laiden Santa Vitoria do Palmar. The Santa Vitoria do Palmar meteorite was possibly correlated with a daytime fireball in 1997. Pieces were subsequently recovered in 2003.
The 2.3 kg end cut shown here is likely the largest remaining piece of this meteorite
2.3 kg end section $5500
Chelyabinsk(LL5) ||fell 2-15-2013, Russia
These are super fresh pieces of the most witnessed meteorite fall of modern times. The meteor’s explosion shattered windows, knocked down walls and caused hundreds of injuries.
Chico (Impact Melt) ||found 1954, New Mexico, 105 kg total known weight
slice from the main mass at the
University of New Mexico.
Displays beautifully with a
highly polished face full of
vesicles (gas bubbles), swirly
melt and metal blebs. See both
photos. Comes with a
museum label from the UNM
Institute of Meteoritics.
Chico, classified as an L5 Impact Melt, represents the fused and melted rock from an asteroid crater!
Mreira(L6) || fell December 16, 2012, Mauritania || ~4 kg total known weight
Super fresh specimens from a new fall. You will love the velvety black fusion crust and striking shocked interior. There is very little of this material available and we purchased some right after the discovery.
Saint-Severin (LL6) ||fell 6.27.1966, France || 271 kilograms total weight
This stunning complete slice was
cut from the
Haag mass that I purchased
several years ago. It is a
very large slice for weighing
only 52 grams. The back
side was originally miscut but
the front face shows a nice
NEW Shelburne(L5) || Fell 1904, Canada || 18.6 kg total known weight
A total of two stones were recovered near Shelburne, Ontario in August, 1904. Witnesses heard a noise they thought to be the shed falling down. Instead they found a new hole near the shed, from which the smaller stone was recovered.
The 9.2 gram slice to the right displays excellent veining, as well as fusion crust along one edge.
