Aloha mai kakou,
Chelyabinsk slices and end cuts.
A 140g fusion crusted stone recovered within days of the February 15 Russian fireball in the Urals. All material was sliced on a wire saw by Montana Meteorite Laboratory, featuring melt phases that transition to delicate tendrils of shock veins throughout the matrix, interspersed with FeNi and blobby FeS inclusions. You may be able to pay less, but you will not find higher quality than these specimens.
An abundant selection of pristine Chelyabinsk meteorite individuals, from 'binsk berries to a 69.72g freshly fusion crusted and regmaglypted beauty. There are a few half stones that reveal a pale matrix, peppered with metal inclusions and streaked with stunning shock veins. Most have not a speck of oxidation, and are as fresh as the day they fell.
