METEORITE MEN
SIKHOTE-ALIN IRON METEORITE COLLECTOR'S SET MM-06 (Large)
A genuine space rock with exclusive documentation and signed photo
 

The Sikhote-Alin shower of 1947 took place in a remote area of eastern Russia and was the largest single meteoritic event documented in modern times. It is an extremely rare witnessed fall iron. Once relatively available in the marketplace, intensive hunting at the fall site has resulted in the area being completely hunted out, and no new specimens now make it into collectors' hands.

The specimen offered here is described as shrapnel. These remarkable meteorites literally exploded during flight, resulting in a unique twisted, angular shape. You can really see the fury and power that caused these meteorites to fragment and burn in our atmosphere.

This great meteorite collectible comes with excellent documentation: a specimen identification card, an information sheet about the Sikhote-Alin meteorite fall, a Meteorite Men Certificate of Authenticity, and an exclusive color photograph of the Meteorite Men, personally signed by Steve and Geoff.

NOTES AND DIMENSIONS

Included in this wonderful collectors' set is a display stand which will show off your iron meteorite in the best possible light. These specimens range in size from about 40 to 70 grams.

Please note: The Meteorite Men includes a genuine iron meteorite that is similar in appearance to the one pictured. Every meteorite is unique, so please bear in mind that the photograph is of a representative specimen and similar—but not identical—to the one you will receive.

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.
