Description (last update: 2 years ago)
various meteorites for sale ranging in price from 10 euros to hundreds of euros.I have iron meteorites and stone ones.I am a member in good standing with The International Meteorite Collectors Association-number 2424 http://www.imca.cc and guarantee every meteorite for life.
I'll be more specific for the €10 meteorites.This would be one of the Campo Del Cielo iron meteorites in the 10 gram range that are seen in my hand in picture 9, or one of the uncut stone meteorites in the 10 gram range from picture 1.The stone meteorites are NWA869 from Northwest Africa.Classified as L4-6.
I can also do vials filled with 10 grams of meteorites for €10 plus €3 postage.The only type which will fit in the vials are NWA 869 stony meteorite fragments.I'll also throw in a strong neodymium magnet as seen in the picture holding another magnet thru my thumb.These meteorites are magnetic because of the metal content.
I love the NWA 869 stone meteorites for a number of reasons.First of all a lot of them were discovered and are still being found.Over 3,000 kg so far have been brought out of the Sahara.
They are a nice meteorite to work with as they are very solid and not prone to rusting issues.I have a diamond-tipped saw that I can cut these with using distilled water as a lubricant.I then put them in the oven for 4 hours to drive out any moisture and I then use 12 grades of sandpaper ranging from 150 to 3000 grit to polish the cut faces to a nice glossy finish which shows off the chondrules,clasts and metal flecking.The glossy finished stone meteorite shown is sold but I have polished more , check my other ads!!.These are NOW UNDER €1 a gram.It takes me a good hour getting the finish I want on these.The high gloss finish also stabilises the meteorite and I guarantee these will stay rust free as I've had some for 10 years in our wet climate and they never show any signs of rusting.100% guarantee
