Allende, Mexico, CV3, carbonaceous chondrite, full slice, 30.5 grams.
{short description of image}...{short description of image}

One specimen offered, both sides presented in the above images.

Fell, February 8, 1969, 01:05 local time, Pueblito de Allende, Chihuahua State, Mexico.

The Allende meteorite has become one of the most famous and collection-desirable stone meteorites. This specimen is chondrule-rich, containing some of the oldest, most pristene matter available for scientific study. The white calcium-aluminum inclusions contain presolar grains - stardust that formed prior to the formation of our Sun that became incorporated as solid matter during our Sun's protosun period of the early solar system. This specimen contains many types of chondrules, CAI's, amygdaloidal and hibonite inclusions as well as fusion-crusted edges along the outer edge perimeter.

Estherville iron nodules
From the Estherville, Iowa, mesosiderite Fall of May 10th 1879

 Estherville iron nodule, fusion crusted, 11 grams. Collection specimen, not for sale..
 
 
{short description of image}
Estherville iron nodule, 10.05 grams, 20mm x 17mm x 11mm, fusion crusted, $585.00
 
 The Estherville meteorite shower of May 10, 1879 rained over 350kg of a rare classification of meteorite called a mesosiderite over Emmet County Iowa. Mesosiderites are an odd type of differentiated meteorite, meaning that somehow the Fe/Ni mix from the asteroidal core melted and combined with molten silicates (basalt) near the surface. Not only did the shower produce many larger specimens, it produced many smaller "iron nodules" consisting of an admixture of both the Ni/Fe and basalt.
 Harvey Nininger published on these remarkable nodules singling out the oriented ones (the Published Papers of Harvey Harlow Nininger, June 1971)
 He examined over 700 specimens, studiying the aerodynamic abalation from orientation.
 Offered are three samples of these nodules, all oriented, all with exposed Ni/Fe and the stony basaltic matrix, all with fragmented sections of both primary and secondary fusion crust. The serious study of meteoritics was beginning at this time and Nininger was at the forefront. Aside from their unique nature, these are historic meteorite samples from when the "eye" of science began to take notice.
 For serious study, teaching, and private collections.
