Today I have the pleasure of offering one of the world's largest pieces of a
very poorly distributed meteorite.
American Museum of Natural History - 9 grams
Natural History Museum, London - 14.6 grams
My available specimen - 1055 grams
Meet Kaali, an iron meteorite legally obtained from a protected site, found
at the best preserved crater in Eurasia in Estonia and steeped in Finnish
Folklore just a hop across the Baltic sea. A true iron from the iron age,
the lake that now fills the crater has been an archeological trove of
ancient objects and remains of animal sacrifices.
I have put together a lively write-up, worth a read even if not looking to
buy. Please have a look.
