Meteor P.13

Established 1982


Updated 8 February 2018


The Odessa meteorite was found in Ector County, Texas before 1922 and is possibly the second best known meteorite fall location in the US. The "crater" area is mostly eroded and protected from searching; therefore, Odessa specimens are becoming scarcer as available material has been deposited into collections and repositories. Classified as an Iron, coarse Octahedrite, IAB, main group, Odessa specimens do not display "thumbprints" as well as Canyon Diablo specimens. The larger specimen offered here weighs 388 grams and is priced at $485.00. The macro specimen weighs 2.6 grams and is priced at $7.80.

OUM DREYGA, Morocco - Witnessed Fall

PALOMAS, Mexico  


The Palomas meteorite was found near the village of Palomas, Chihuahua, Mexico, in late 2002. Only a single stone of 8.9 kg was found. This meteorite was classified as an H4 chondrite. All slices show good metal flecking and, although weathered, there is some remnants of fusion crust. An interesting and very inexpensive find.
