METEORITE MEN
DRONINO, RUSSIA IRON METEORITES
AS SEEN ON SEASON THREE, EPISODE ONE
Found on Meteorite Men! Collectible MM-18

A rare ataxite meteorite with documentation and exclusive signed photo

Our Russian collectors' set features a beautiful example of the rare Dronino ataxite personally found by Geoff of Meteorite Men and his team while filming Season Three, Episode Four in rural Russia during the summer of 2011. Ataxites are nickel-rich irons, and are a rare class of meteorite. These slices were taken from the 3-kg Dronino mass found during the expedition (the first one found on the program), and its excavation is well featured in the episode.

** This collectors' set consists of slices taken from the 3-kg Dronino mass **
Only a very limited number are available
Orders will be taken on a first come, first served basis.
Please see ordering information at the bottom of the page.

The specimens pictured below are the actual pieces you will receive. Each piece is accompanied by the following:

• A hand made specimen identification card

• An exclusive color photo of Geoff with one of his Dronino finds (personally signed by Geoff)

• A signed certificate of authenticity confirming that this actual specimen was found on the show

Due to their unusual structure ataxties do not reveal a Widmanstätten Pattern when etched. Instead, they display a most attractive and unusual silvery grey matte finish, with small amoeba-like inclusions. The cutting and etching process is extremely difficult and time consuming with this particular meteorite. Viewers will have noted that the original mass was rusty at the time of excavation. In order to preserve this important ataxite, the exterior of the mass was thoroughly cleaned of all loose material. Two different prep labs worked on the cutting, cleaning, and conservation of these specimens, and we are delighted to be able to offer a limited number of full slices, with a signed certificate of authenticity, to our customers.

These sets will be shipped by Priority Mail with Delivery Confirmation. Call us toll-free at 888 SKY ROXX or order by and we will expedite your order. Supplies of this rare meteorite are very limited.
