Meteorites

 

Meteorites, primordial space rocks that fall through the sky and strike the Earth's surface. Science has been able to analyse a small amount of these extraterrestrial gems forming parts of our solar system, which evolved over 4.5 billion years. Cataloguing pieces of planet and asteroids which have fallen to Earth. We can only with confidence claim to know where a handful of the estimated 50,000 - 75,000 falls to our terrestrial home, each year derive, namely the planets we have visited!


The most productive places to find meteorites are open flat regions, like the Sahara desert, where meteorites blackened on the outside by their fiery passage through the atmosphere stick out among the light coloured sand. With thousands of miles of ground to cover, finding them is a huge task.

  1. Argentinean Meteorite Fragments Main View

    Argentinian Meteorite Fragments

    £42.00
    Here's a rare opportunity to purchase one of our specimen 3 g meteorites fragments from the Chaco and Santiago del Estero, Argentinian Meteorite fall. You will receive a single piece as seen in the illustrations to the left in our images; each one varies in size and weight; however, only very slightly. These meteorites form part of a recent discovery found close to the original meteor fall, which entered earth atmosphere 2,200 to 2,700 BC. The age corroborated by charred wood carbon 14 dated and discovered under the initial meteorite fall sight. Type: Meteorite. (Iron/Octahedrite/Coarse). Type Iron. Age: (Reported discovery, 1572) Space age 4.5 billion years. Fall: 2,200 – 2,700 years BC. Origin: Gran Chaco Gualambo, Chaco in Argentina. Meteorite measurements. Height: 0.5 cm Width: 1.3 cm Depth: 0.8 cm Average weight: 0.003 - 0.005 g Learn More
  2. NWA Meteorite 62 Grams

    NWA Meteorite - 62 g

    £92.00
    A North-West African (NWA) Meteorite separated from a more substantial meteor body entering the earth’s stratosphere. Formed of semi-molten particles of the solar nebula. By accumulation or coalescence, particles merge to form asteroid belts which in turn fall to more massive planetary bodies such as the earth as meteorites. Meteorites more easily discovered in flat open spaces such as desert regions and specifically Antartica, make collecting a highly specialised field activity. Meteorite measurements. Height: 3.9 cm Width: 4.9 cm Depth: 2.7 cm Approximate weight: 0.062 g Learn More

    £102.00
    A North-West Africa (NWA) Meteorite of 56 g separated from a more substantial meteor body entering the earth’s stratosphere. Formed of semi-molten particles of the solar nebula. By accumulation or coalescence, particles merge to form asteroid belts which in turn fall to more massive planetary bodies such as the earth as meteorites. Meteorites more easily discovered in flat open spaces such as desert regions and specifically Antartica, make collecting a highly specialised field activity. Meteorite measurements. Height: 3.6 cm Width: 4 cm Depth: 2.5 cm Approximate weight: 0.056 g Learn More
  4. NWA Meteorite 68 Grams

    NWA Meteorite - 68 g

    £102.00
    A North West Africa (NWA) Meteorite of 68 grams separated from a more substantial meteor body entering the earth’s stratosphere. Formed of semi-molten particles of the solar nebula. By accumulation or coalescence, particles merge to form asteroid belts which in turn fall to more massive planetary bodies such as the earth as meteorites. Meteorites more easily discovered in flat open spaces such as desert regions and specifically Antartica, make collecting a highly specialised field activity. Meteorite measurements.

  5. NWA Meteorite 69 Grams

    NWA Meteorite - 69 g

    £142.00
    A North-West Africa (NWA) Meteorite of 69 g separated from a more substantial meteor body entering the earth’s stratosphere. Formed of semi-molten particles of the solar nebula. By accumulation or coalescence, particles merge to form asteroid belts which in turn fall to more massive planetary bodies such as the earth as meteorites. Meteorites more easily discovered in flat open spaces such as desert regions and specifically Antartica, make collecting a highly specialised field activity. Meteorite measurements.

  6. NWA Meteorite space rock

    NWA Meteorite - 126 g

    £397.00
    Separated from a more substantial meteor body entering the earth’s stratosphere. Formed of semi-molten particles of the solar nebula. By accumulation or coalescence, particles merge to form asteroid belts which in turn fall to more massive planetary bodies such as the earth as meteorites. Meteorites more easily discovered in flat open spaces such as desert regions and specifically Antartica, make collecting a highly specialised field activity. Type: NWA H5 Location: Mauritanian desert (open field discovery) Meteorite measurements. Height: 5.8 cm Width: 4.8 cm Depth: 3.0 cm Approximate weight: 0,126 g There is one recorded account of one person being struck by a meteorite in the mid nineteen fifties which was sold for eighteen times the worth of its same weight of gold.

  7. New NWA Meteorite On Bronze Mount

    NWA Meteorite 446 g

    £692.00
    An Exquisitely presented North-West African [NWA], H5 (Chondrite) meteorite and bronze display stand. The meteorite separated from a more substantial meteor body hurtling through space, eventually entering the earth's stratosphere. NWA Meteorites are formed of semi-molten particles found in the solar nebula, and by accumulation or coalescence, these particles merge to form asteroid belts. These are usually colliding with planets, especially planets with a strong gravitational pull. - Asteroid debris fall from Meteors, Meteor debris, are Meteorites. - Chondrites originate from asteroids orbiting our solar system. - Displaying a glossy and molten surface formed by extreme temperatures. - Interior structure may be observed where surface impact fractures occur. - Chondrite meteorites contain chondrules, (microscopic spheres) building blocks of our planetary systems. - Science identifies Chondrite meteorites consisting of up to approximately 20% iron + nickel. - Chondrules formed by molten particles of the solar nebula - a process of accumulation or coalescence. - Chondrites differ from iron meteorites by consisting of lower iron content. - Chondrites provide scientific analytics, giving insight into the age of our solar system. Origin: Near Zuwairat, Mauritania, class H5, North W. Africa [NWA]. Age: Undetermined. Meteorite measurements. Length: 10.4 cm Width: 7.5 cm Depth: 2.3 cm Overall measurements. L 19 x W 7.5 x D 6.0 cm Meteorite weight: 0,446 g Overall approx weight: 0,700 g Learn More
