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.
- NWA 869 Meteorite -
We have NWA 869 Meteorites in slices and end pieces. It is a brecciated stone with clasts of many different types incorporated into its makeup. slices can contain large metal grains, troilite inclusions, giant chondrules, armored chondrules and almost anything else seen in stone meteorites.
- D’Orbigny Meteorite For Sale - We have some very nice small specimens of D'Orbigny meteorite. From the Meteoritical Bulletin: A 16.55 kg stone, mostly covered with dark gray fusion crust, was found in a corn field after a farmer hit it with a plow.
- Gao Meteorite For Sale -
Gao officially named Gao-Guenie was a witnessed fall on March 5 1960. We have some nice affordable Gao meteorites for sale on our website.

- Allende (CV3.2) -
Allende (CV3.2) 19.6g Individual — Allende is one of the most primitive meteorites, and it illustrates the history of our solar system better than any other space rock. The calcium-aluminum inclusions (CAIs) seen in CV chondrites were the very first bits of matter to condense out of the solar nebula and even pre-date chondrules by 2-3 million years. The chondrules in Allende formed over 100 million years before the accretion of differentiated bodies like Earth began. This specimen displays all the important visible characteristics of Allende. There is an approximately 15mm x 15mm window into the interior of this stone, which reveals a large 4mm diameter CAI, plus dozens of chondrules with many displaying their spherical shape. The exterior of this individual shows over 50% fusion crust. (SR0103)

- NWA 4502 (CV3-4) -
Carbonaceous chondrites are the most primitive meteorites, and CV chondrites illustrate the history of our solar system better than any other space rock. The calcium-aluminum inclusions (CAIs) seen in CV chondrites were the very first bits of matter to condense out of the solar nebula and even pre-date chondrules by 2-3 million years. The chondrules in CV meteorites formed over 100 million years before the accretion of differentiated bodies like Earth began.
NWA 4502 fell in an unknown Northwest Africa location and was purchased in Erfoud, Morocco. This weathered space rock contains countless chondrules 0.5mm to 1mm in diameter plus dozens of chondrules 1mm to 2mm in diameter. Also visible is a large 4mm calcium-aluminum inclusion (CAI). The external surface of this end piece displays essentially 100% fusion crust. (SR0166)
