Dear List Members,
The newest Martian meteorite, NWA 5789, an Anomalous (Provisional, with
further studies under way), has been announced and confirmed by acquiring
parties who were very fortunate to be a part of this amazing Martian
meteorite discovery. I first announced this different planetary meteorite
last week, with confirmation from the majority mass holders, Martian Altman
(and Stefan Ralew) (congratulations, guys!!).
As Martin pointed out, very little material is available from the limited
Total Known Weight of just 49 grams. From the samples I provided to two
different institutions for the first confirmations of this new find, and
then the further completing type sample provided by Stefan and Martin, there
is almost nothing available to collectors.
I have just seven specimens on eBay that will end tomorrow (Sunday, June 7th
at about 2:00 PM Florida time!). All of these were started at just 99 cents
each, have bids and have many eBay, "Watchers", per auction. Those who are
most interested are watching and will be bidding up to the end of these
This may be your only chance to acquire a sample of this newest of Martian
meteorites, paired to nothing before!!
Click here to see all (perhaps the 'only' available) seven NWA 5789
"Thank You" for bidding and, Good Luck!
