SEYMCHAN, Russia

In 1967, two masses were found in a stream flowing into the Hekandue River, Magadan district, Russia. They were solid iron meteorite material, coarse octahedrite, IIE, ungrouped. More recently, meteorite hunters recovered additional masses; a few rare pieces contained olivine crystals. Therefore, Seymchan is an Iron/Pallasite. The specimens shown here contain  excellent gemmy olivine crystals similar to Esquel and Imilac, except darker in color. Seymchan has proven to be stable and provides another Pallasite location for the collector. All of these partial slices are mirror polished on one side and smooth on the opposite side. These partial slices were cut from my 950 gram thick slice and are absolutely stunning and not the typical run-of-the-mill Seymchan specimens. You will be more than satisfied!!!

SPRINGWATER, Canada 

Three masses were found in 1931 near Springwater, 100 miles west of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada. Springwater is classified as a Stony-iron, Pallasite, ungrouped, rounded olivine shape. Even though not quite as translucent as some other Pallasites, it is nonetheless a very striking meteorite. These partial slices are from a thick slice I removed from my collection which was highly polished on one side and etched on the other; therefore, some slices have an etched surface while others have the more traditional polished surface. All are very nice specimens and will make attractive additions to most any meteorite collection.

SULAGIRI, India - Witnessed Fall   

This meteorite fell on 12 September 2008 in Hosur Taluk, Krishnagiri district, Tamil Nada, India. Officially classified as an  LL6, and named Sulaguri, this new fall joins many other meteorites from India which are difficult to obtain. These fragments and slices were removed from three larger specimens that I obtained from a reputable European laboratory.

SUTTER'S MILL, California - Witnessed Fall

According to the Meteoritical Society Database, a bright daytime fireball moving east-to-west was seen on 22 April 2012 over California and Nevada. A loud sonic boom was heard over a wide region around Lake Tahoe and numerous small stones fell in and around Coloma, El Dorado County, California. This meteorite is classified as a Carbonaceous chondrite but the group has not been assigned as yet. The part slices offered here came from Steve Arnold of Meteorite Men and his cards will be furnished with each specimen. Prices have been quite high for this rare meteorite but the small amount of material available has been rapidly acquired by institutions and collectors alike.

SYLACAUGA, Alabama - Witnessed Fall

Two stones fell on 30 November 1954, in Talladega County, Alabama, landing about two miles apart. One stone fell through the roof of a house striking Mrs. Ann Hodges on the hip. Sylacauga is the only meteorite confirmed to have hit a human in modern history, an incredibly rare experience. The specimen offered here came from Mile High Meteorites, ex Jim Schwade collection (with reference to the Smithsonian). The well prepared partial slice offered here weighs 1.80 grams and is priced at a very reasonable $3000.00. Sylacauga, 1.80 gms.jpg (32540 bytes)
