IN STOCK - Natural Surface Meteorite Specimens

We always try to have on hand some small meteorite specimens available at low cost for testing or other purposes. They're great to check your detector's response to a known sample of some well-known meteorite types. These specimens are in a very natural state, with the original surface intact. Besides their usefulness as test specimens, they are genuinely interesting and unique objects from space, and would make a great addition to any meteorite or mineral collection.

Ordering info: Send an e-mail with your order. Mailing address: Ed Gerken, POB 747, Hill City, SD 57745. I pay the postage on smaller specimens. On larger specimens or outside of the Continental US, the actual postage amount will be added to your order.

My source for specimens is drying up. I may not be able to restock once these are sold, but I'll try to locate a new wholesaler.
Please e-mail for more info.

Happy Hunting! -Ed Gerken

Sikhote-Alin, Eastern Siberia
Iron Meteorite

Originating from the asteroid belt between Jupiter and Mars, it entered Earth's atmosphere above the Sikhote-Alin Mountains on February 12, 1947. The fall was widely witnessed and reported. The main meteor entered the earth intact, then split into several large fragments some of which exploded on impact or while still airborne. Many of the fragments show some degree of heating and ablation, depending on how long they were exposed to the friction of entry into the atmosphere. Scientifically speaking, they are way cool!

Sikhotes are becoming scarce of late and their cost has more than doubled, but we still have a source for some smaller specimens. I didn't have an accurate scale to weigh the specimens at left, but I estimate them at 2 to 3 grams apiece.
