I decided to put these few meteorites up before I head to Tucson. I
will be heading there on Tuesday so let me know ASAP if you are
interested in any of my offers.
The first one is a new NWA pallasite. It is highly weathered with all
the metal being completely replaced. It does not have a number and is
being sold that way. I prefer to sell these in lots.
25- 50 grams $3.50 / g let me know your preferred size
10-25 grams $5.00 / g
100 gram lots - $2.50 / g
250 gram lots- $2.00 / g
500 gram lots- $1.75 / g
whole box ??? email me for a price.
Next some NWA unclassified OC's. I will let you high grade these and
just offer any one at 27.5 cents per gram.
Offered these before. If you want any of these how about 10% off one
piece or 20% off two or more.
Here are some pictures:
967g Nice high quality piece with no fresh breaks and no weathering cracks.
0.35 / g = $338
1087g Top portion of the meteorite has good showy crust. Does have a
couple of weathering cracks showing.
0.30 / g = $326
1083g This one is around 2/3 crusted with a couple of weathering
cracks showing. Also has nice rich fusion crust.
0.325 / g = $352
1094g Top half of this meteorite has relict fusion crust that is
coated with a desert varnish. Still a nice solid piece.
0.275 / g = $328
964g Top half of this one has good crust with a weak desert polish
0.35 / g = $301
1188g Fully crusted monster with one area that has been sand blasted.
0.375 / g = $445
879g Really odd look to this one as it has a charcoal like black
appearance to it. Someone has polished a window on it. Very solid
0.375 / g = $329
1942g All surfaces are crusted on this one with just some areas that
have been sand blasted. Loads of regmaglypts on this one make it one
of my favorite in this batch.
0.35 / g = $679
1227g Top face and bottom face are fully crusted but all edges are
sand blasted completely erasing the crust.
0.275 / g = $337
1553g Big weathered fragment with one patch of fusion crust.
0.25 / g = $388
1495g About 1/2 of this piece is still crusted. Fairly showy on one
side as it has several regmaglypts.
0.275 / g $411
Here is a great lot of LDG that I purchased some years ago. Each piece
has been professionally cleaned. So most will not have the reddish
tint that is common with the typical LDG. I am trying to sell this
quickly so I have dropped the price down to lower that I have ever
seen it. The lot has had all the highest grade piece removed but there
are still plenty of individuals that should sell for over $0.75 per
Please look here for pictures of the typical quality of material available:
500 grams -1kg 30 cents/gram
1kg - 5kg 25 cents/gram
5kg - 10kg 20 cents/gram
If you want specific sizes let me know and I will try to accommodate
you as much as possible. Shipping is extra. If you plan on going to
the Tucson show let me know and I will deliver it to you there for no
