 Serious collectors need no introduction to this meteorite. For everyone else it's enjoyable to read about.
As reported in Meteoritics, Vol. 20, 1985: "At approximately 22:30 U.T. on Monday, December 10, 1984, the skies were partly cloudy over southeast Georgia, U.S.A. and it was preparing to rain. In the late twilight sky, Vietnam veteran, Don Richardson had just stepped out of his mobile home. A whistling noise, reminding him of an incoming mortar round, made him flinch instinctively. Thirty-six meters from where he was standing an object impacted with a loud bang. It struck a mailbox, knocking it to the ground."
A single 1,455 gram, fusion crusted, stone mass was recovered from this Fall.

Meteorite thin sections

Meteorite thin-sections are carefully prepared glass slides suitable for mineralogical and petrology studies when viewed through a microscope. They are thin slices of meteorites that have been carefully ground down and polished so thinly that light can pass through the meteorite's mineral structures.

In transmitted light, thin sections reveal the texture and crystal shape of minerals and other identifying meteoritical characteristics while through polarized light, the mineralogy is awash in color allowing for more complete mineral identification. All slides are 2" x 1" with large surface areas for study.

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, SOLD
 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.
