Small but beautiful examples of rarer types!

Eucrites are brecciated surface material
from the Asteroid Vesta. We have many
different examples, this being a polished
25mm x 25mm specimen of Camel Donga
that was found in January, 1984 on the
Nullarbor Plain, Western Australia

Tatahouine is a diogenite from the asteroid
Vesta. This rare meteorite fell on June 27, 1931
at 0130 hours, about 2 1/2 mi. NE of the village
of Foum Tatahouine, Tunisia, breaking into
thousands of small fragments.This 2cm stone,
at 4.1g, is larger than most offered for sale: we
have several other similarly sized pieces too!
These more typical Tatahouine fragments
have masses around 1g. A great way to acquire
a piece of Vesta without breaking the bank!
Howardites are brecciated achondrites that
originated on the Asteroid Vesta. We have many
different examples, this being a fine 7.2g slice
of NWA 2696.

We have a large inventory of carbonaceous
chondrites including CVs, CMs, CIs, and CKs.
This is an attractive CV3,
NWA 6870 that was
found in May 2011 probably in Algeria. We have
several slices available.

We usually have several affordable samples
of the famous
Allende CV3. They display many
obvious chondrules in a sooty matrix with whitish
calcium-aluminium inclusions. Like most of
the carbonaceous chondrites, Allende has been
found to contain numbers of amino acids!
Another CV3, this time NWA 6619 found in 2011
possibly in Algeria. This meteorite has large,
obvious chondrules and a low TKM: the example
shown has a mass of over 7.5g
NWA 3118. As with many carbonaceous space
rocks, eight of the twenty amino acids found
in terrestrial life have been identified in this
meteorite. Many biologists are convinced that
this is proof that life was 'seeded' on Earth
in this way! We have lots available!
Tagish Lake is a C2 / CI2 carbonaceous chondrite
that many scientists believe may have originated
on the surface of a comet. It was seen falling in
British Columbia,Canada in January, 2000. Our
fragments have respectable masses of 50 - 60mg
NWA 5950 is an attractive CV3 that was found
in the Sahara in 2009. We have several slices
around 18g in mass.
Carbonados are rare and intriguing black diamonds,
found in West Africa and Brazil. They were most
probably formed at a time before the Atlantic Basin
opened up, but compelling arguments have been
put forward for an origin on Uranus or Neptune!
Our examples are from Brazil: by far the rarer of
the two fields. We have some small.affordable stones!
NWA 6392 was purchased from a dealer in Marrakech,
Morocco in June 2010. It has a provisional classification
of brecciated diogenite regolith. Our example has a
chunky mass of 6.3g
NWA 6077 is an extraordinarily rare brachinite.
Believed at one time to originate on Mars, many
researchers are proposing that these primitive
achondrites were blasted from the molten
surface of the primordial Earth!
Our largest examples all measure around 10mm,
but we can also supply framed displays similar
to those on the lunar / martian page.
We have just cut more slices of
the EL3 fossil meteorite
NWA 2965
These reveal the relict chondrules
that prove conclusively that it is
not an aubrite! Measuring a hefty
80mm x 50mm x 5mm, these are a
bargain at just:
Seen falling in 1998 in the Guelmim-Es Semara
region of Morocco, the amazing Zag chondrite
appears to derive from the brecciated regolith of
an incredibly ancient parent body. Zag has been
found to contain halite crystals: these are thought
to be the result of the evaporation of salt-bearing
ice inclusions and have been dated as being older
than any previously known meteoritic material.
We have several examples available.
Mt Egerton is an aubrite: composed of nickel-iron
with large crystals of enstatite, it was discovered
in Western Australia in 1941. Our samples are all
individual crystals with masses just under a gram.
We have many samples of the enstatite
Al Haggounia 001. First found in 2005
North East of Laayoune, Western Sahara
this sample is shown around twice actual size.
Larger quantities of Al Haggounia 001 are
available, from 5g to 150g, either as large
fragments or slices
50p per
We have in stock a good quantity of
the EL3 fossil meteorite
NWA 2965
This enstatite-rich meteorite (which has
been paired with NWA 4295) was discovered
in 2005 near El Hagounia, Western Sahara.
We have cut several slices and these show
typical glittery enstatite and dark veining.
NWA 2965 was discovered on the surface of
a saline 'playa', while other paired stones
have been found up to a metre below the
surface. Price per 5g slice:
NWA 4295 is classified as an EL3 fossil meteorite.
This enstatite-rich meteorite was discovered
in an Algerian conglomerate in 2005. Our examples
display shock-veining and glittering enstatite crystals.
These stones are very rare, accounting for less than
2% of all chondrites. Available in 15g fragments at:
Perhaps you might consider buying one of
our rare achondrite collections. This contains
good-sized samples of all three HED types from
the asteroid Vesta, a Lunaite, a Martian meteorite,
an Angrite that some researchers feel may have
originated on Mercury, an Aubrite, an Acapulcoite
and, finally, a Ureilite! Phenomenal value: even
if you could find examples of all nine types, you
would have to pay around £30 each!

Note! Most meteorites here are shown in magnified view! Masses are given as size guides!
