ALDAMA (b), Mexico

A single 66.5 grams stone was found by a rockhound near Aldama, Chihuahua, Mexico, in the summer of 1996. Aldama (b)  is  classified as an H5 chondrite. I had the opportunity to purchase a slice from the Hupe Brothers and cut it into macro specimens. Each of the slices is well polished; the fragment broke off the specimen I was cutting. Here is an opportunity to acquire a very low weight Mexican meteorite at a very reasonable price.

APT, France - Witnessed Fall

After detonations, a single stone fell on 8 October 1803 in Apt, Vaucluse, France, only 6 months after the famous L'Aigle fall, providing further proof that stones fell from the sky. Apt is classified as an L6 chondrite, veined, and is nearly impossible to obtain in the collector market. The TKW is only 3.2 kg, most of which resides in the Paris and Vienna museums. This is a rare and historical meteorite.

ASH CREEK, Texas - Witnessed Fall 

 

On 15 February 2009, the state of Texas was the recipient of a meteorite shower near the town of West, McLennan County. Numerous meteorite hunters converged on the area; many small stones and 3 larger stones were recovered. The fusion crust on the early recovered stones is outstanding and the cut surfaces are quite beautiful. Ash Creek has been published by The Meteoritical Society as the official name for this fall and it has been classified as an L6 chondrite. These specimens were cut from a large slice which was picked up shortly after the fall, not subjected to moisture, and are pristine.  Ash Creek, 2.20 gms.jpg (30446 bytes)
