Hi Martin,
        Actually, many meteorites are reported to have killed people....
but none I know of that are available or close to having a solid
provenience. One was discussed at length on the list just a couple
of months ago - some Roman officer and a bunch of his men. I
believe the Bible has more than one incident reported as well.
Hell, I would like to have one of the frogs in formaldehyde from
the 7 plagues of Egypt, not to mention the burning ice.
        A documented KILLER meteorite? I would buy all I could!
        (By the way, Dr. Deits, one of the first to propose "continental
drift" in the early 1900s was quoted as saying he wanted to die
being struck by a meteorite, then fossilized and recovered by future
        Best wishes, Michael
