This fabulous Gao-Guenie has a splendid surface that has been so vividly altered by melting during flight that it takes a moment to notice that it is also oriented.

Classification: Unclassified chondrite
Weight: 66.0 grams
Dimensions: 108 mm x 59 mm x 5 mm
Location: Northwest Africa
Date of find: 1999
Notes:
When we acquired this slice, it had "impact melt breccia" written on the packing material, but that's not an official classification. This full slice is loaded with chondrules and metal flakes suspended in an attractive grey, silver, and cream matrix. An historic (and unusual) Labenne find. More >>>

Catalog number: NC-XX-21
Classification: Unclassified
Weight: 1,645 grams
Dimensions: 127 mm x 96 mm x 96 mm
Location: Northwest Africa
Date of find: 2005
Notes: This hefty, thumbprinted, fusion-crusted beauty is an exemplary stone meteorite. Regmaglypts are visible on all of its six geometric faces and it also sits comfortably on each of those six faces. The only problem with this glorious chondrite is trying to decide how to display it. Every angle is appealing.

Weight: 1,769 grams
Dimensions: 202 mm x 111 mm x 75 mm
Location: Northwest Africa

Notes: This massive NWA part stone shows moderate weathering and I was really taken by its shape, which appears to be the leading edge of a very large oriented stone. It is extremely heavy for its size, indicating a very high iron content.

Location: Siberia, Russia
Date of fall: February 12, 1947

  SIKHOTE-ALIN 237.4 grams
 

Catalog number: NC-SA-33
Classification: IIAB iron
Weight: 237.4 grams
Dimensions: 68 mm x 42 mm x 30 mm
Location: Siberia, Russia
Date of fall: February 12, 1947
Notes: One of the most interesting meteorites in the entire collection, as it is part shrapnel and part individual. We can therefore posit that this is an extremely rare exterior portion of one of the large shrapnel-forming masses. We call these pieces "missing links," and in seventeen years, this is only the third example I have seen. Rare, amazing, intriguing, and most definitely the best of both worlds. More >>>
