Meteorites for sale
I have been a collector of meteorites for many years and need to "thin the herd".

Meteorites come in 3 broad types: Stones (chondrites and achondrites), Irons, and Stoney-Irons (pallasites and mesosiderites).

I am offering here for sale examples of Stone meteorites. These fell in Upper Volta in 1960, and were classified by the Meteoretical Society as ordinary chondrites type H5 and named "Gao-Guenie" (after the names of the nearby towns).

These examples are all "individuals" rather than broken pieces of a larger meteorite, so they display some fusion crust which forms on the surface of the piece as it heats up while falling through the atmosphere, and there is very little weathering of the surface.

The cube in the photograph is 1cm x 1 cm and is shown for determining the size only - it is not included in the sale.

I am a member of the International Meteorite Collectors' Association (membership no. 5835) and guarantee that anything I sell is a genuine meteorite.

Prices (including postage within the UK) and weights are:

#1 - 5.3g - 7 SOLD
#2 - 5.4g - 7 SOLD
#3 - 3.7g - 5 SOLD
#4 - 3.6g - 5
#5 - 4.8g - 6 SOLD
#6 - SOLD
#7 - 3.4g - 5

I will also be selling some small Chelyabinsk stone meteorites, and Agoudal/Imilchil Iron meteorites in the near future.

Price: 7
