Isn't it illegal now to export meteorites from Argentina (assuming this is a
meteorite originating in Argentina, not simply meteortes from elsewhere provided
by a seller there)?
Okay, a little Googling, and it is just Campo del Cielo that is state-owned, and
requires a duty be paid to export it:
I would assume that in a situation (not saying that you were in that situation)
where the shipment would have been concidered illegal (Campo del Cielo shipped
without paying the export) it would be uninsurable anyway.
