Stone Meteorites For Sale
Stony Meteorites is the largest group of meteorite types. As the name states they are composed of mostly mineral material. Along with the mineral most will have some nickel iron in the form of small grains of metal. But, there are many other characteristics that vary from specimen to specimen so that there are now a host of subgroups in the stone meteorite family. Some have a tiny little bit of metal while others have much more. Thus the low metal L type stones and the H high metal type stones. Some meteorites have been heated so much in their journey through the eons that they are recrystallized and nothing original remains. Others have lived quiet and peaceful lives in space and are pristine with internal structures nearly unchanged since their formation. Our catalog offers a wide selection of stone meteorites to satisfy the tastes of both the seasoned collector and the new collector.
