Collection Specimen
 
Nakhla, Egypt, the "N" of the SNC suite of Martian meteorites.
 
 {short description of image}
 
Nakhla, Martian, Naklite, fusion-crusted, 7.4 grams.
 
Fell June 28, 1911 over Alexandria, Egypt. Originally, late 80's, three meteorites, Shergotty, Nakhla, and Chsssigny were known to not fit into any known meteorite classification. Careful study revealed that trapped gasses within them matched the telemetry data sent back from the Viking Lander on Mars. Science soon realized that we had samples of Mars here on Earth in meteorites.
Anyone fortunate enouth to see and hold a specimen of Nakhla will not forget it. Composed mainly of green diopside, some highly ferriferous olivine and feldspar, Nakhla is one of the Crown Jewels of meteorites..

Abee, Alberta, Canada
 
Enstatite, impact-melt, EH4 chondrite, 116 grams.
An exceptionally beautiful and rare Canadian Meteorite
 
{short description of image}
Abee, 116 grams, 143mm x 52mm x 8mm, fusion crusted along curved surface, visible chondrules in large clast. Spectacular bimodal breccia, email for price.
 

The parent bodies of many meteorites - SNC's (Mars), achondrites (Vesta), lunar (Moon) are known. The parent body for this rare class of meteorites, enstatite chondrites, is not.

On June 10, 1952 one of this rare class of stone meteorites, an enstatite chondrite, fell in Alberta, Canada. Analysis has shown that this meteorite, Abee, is unlike all other enstatite chondrites. It's brecciated structure (large clasts of 2 cm to 15 cm ) is an indication that "Abee" is from the surface of an unknown parent body.

Spectacular angular clasts and brecciation, Abee is unlike any known meteorite. Offered are three specimens.

Estherville iron nodules
 
From the Estherville, Iowa, mesosiderite Fall of May 10th 1879
 
 {short description of image}
 
 Estherville iron nodule, fusion crusted, 11 grams. Collection specimen, not for sale..
 
 {short description of image}
 
 Estherville iron nodule, 3.62 grams, 15mm x 11mm x 9mm, oriented, melted iron, partial fusion crust, $360.00
 
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.

Current data on Carbonado Diamonds

Carbonado or "black" diamonds, are exotic diamonds found in Brazil and the Central African Republic. They are unusual for being the color of charcoal and full of frothy bubbles. These diamonds can also have a face that looks like melted glass.
A research team led by Stephen Haggerty of Florida International University in Miami has presented a new study that these "stones" were brought to Earth by an asteroid billions of years ago. The findings were published online in the journal "Astrophysical Journal Letters" on December 20, 2006.
The scientists exposed polished pieces of these stones, now known as carbonado diamonds, to extremely intense infrared light. The test revealed the presence of many hydrogen-carbon bonds, indicating that the diamonds probably formed in a hydrogen-rich environment-such as that found in space. The diamonds also showed strong similarities to tiny nanodiamonds, which are frequently found in meteorites. Astrophysicists have developed theories predicting that nanodiamonds form easily in the stellar explosions called supernovas, which scatter debris through interstellar space.
Haggerty maintains that the deposits in the Central African Republic and Brazil, came from the impact of a diamond-rich asteroid millions of years ago, when South America and Africa were joined. So even though the two diamond fields are now thousands of miles apart, they're remnants of a single, original deposit. Haggerty estimated that the asteroid must have been about half a mile (one kilometer) in diameter.
The unusual bubbles seen in specimens of carbonados probably came from fizzing gases when the diamonds were forming, Haggerty added. This adds further credence to the extraterrestrial origin theory, since conventional diamonds form under immense pressure deep beneath the Earths crust, where gas bubbles simply couldn't form.
Carbonado diamonds also contain a mineral called osborneite, which has been found only in meteorites and comet dust recovered by the recent Stardust mission. Additionally, adding to the evidence for an extra-terrestrial origin, carbonado diamonds have never been reported among any of the other 600 tons of "conventional" diamonds mined, sorted, graded, traded, cut, and polished in the last century. Hopefully, researchers will eventually identify a carbonado parent body in the Asteroid Belt."
