This wonderful collectors’ set features four different specimens, one of the main meteorite groups and an impact glass. Broaden your knowledge of the three meteorite classes and impactites by comparing the differences in each. This kit contains a stone meteorite, NWA 869, with remnant fusion to help train your eye for spotting stone meteorites in the field. The Henbury iron meteorite has a natural patina, which is typical to how iron meteorites are found, showing signs of rust after terrestrialzation. In the stony-iron group are fragments of Vaca Muerta, use your loupe to get up close and personal with this rare meteorite type. Finally, Darwin Glass rounds out the collection. This amazing impact glass is formed by a significant meteorite impact, and is the result of desert sand melting into glass. Also included in this auction is a tough, portable loupe and digital field scale. The amazing 60X magnifier has a powerful built-in light, enabling you to see those tiny chondrules and metal flakes. It is accompanied by a carrying pouch with velcro close, and amazing iPhone attachment! Make your phone’s camera a magnifier and forever capture your macro discoveries. A good digital scale is indispensable – both in the field and in the collection room. This remarkable little scale is tough, easy to use, and measures up to 600 grams in 0.1 gram increments! The Meteorite Expoloration Kit also comes complete with a certificate of authenticity and specimen identification cards for each specimen.
