remarkable and unique iron, Mundrabillas are known for their unusual
zoomorphic shapes, many of which seem to resemble animals or modern
sculptures. Mundrabilla is classified as a medium octahedrite
(IAB) and shows an attractive Widmanstatten Pattern when cut and
Mundrabilla is found in a very remote area of Western Australia
and is rarely offered on the collectors’ market. Specimens
typically display an appealing orange/bronze desert patina, acquired
during thousands of years of exposure to desert heat and sun.
This lovely meteorite collectible comes with excellent documentation:
a specimen identification card, an information sheet about the
Mundrabilla meteorite, a Meteorite Men Certificate of Authenticity,
and an exclusive color photograph of the Meteorite
Men, personally signed by Steve and Geoff.
NOTES AND DIMENSIONS
The Mundrabilla iron meteorite comes with a clear plastic display
stand and specimen weight ranges from 17 to 30 grams. Every specimen
is 100% guaranteed to be an authentic rock from outer space. These
specimens were found in the same area where we were hunting in
Meteorite Men, Season Two, Episode 7, but they were recovered
by Australian friends of ours, and exported with legal paperwork.
In respect of local regulations, we had to leave our Mundrabilla
finds in Australia for the time being.
The Meteorite Men Collector's Set includes one genuine
iron meteorite. The specimen pictured is a representative example,
and similar but not identical to the meteorite you will receive,
as every specimen is unique.
ABOUT THE METEORITE MEN
Geoff of Meteorite Men is a meteorite specialist, photographer
and science writer and his meteorite hunting articles and photographs
have appeared in Meteorite magazine, Astronomy, Rock
& Gem, Sky & Telescope, Wired, Geotimes, Seed,
Sci Q, and many other national and international publications.
He is also a fellow of the world famous Explorer's Club.
Steve of Meteorite Men stunned the scientific community
in the fall of 2005 when he discovered a 1,430-lb pallasite meteorite
buried in a cornfield near Brenham, Kansas. It is the largest
of its type ever found in North America. Pallasites are unique
among meteorites as they are composed of iron-nickel and olivine
crystals (the gemstone peridot).
The two friends have made documentaries about meteorite hunting
for Discovery, National Geographic, The History Channel, PBS,
and The Travel Channel as well as co-hosting Science Channel's
Meteorite Men adventure series.
