XXL Museum Meteorite MARS NWA 13257 Shergotita End cut - 41 g
Morocco

We are offering one of the largest Martian end cuts that can be found in private collections.

An opportunity to have a piece of planet Mars in your hands.

Martian meteorites are extremely rare to find, as a number of phenomena have to occur for them to reach Earth

Due to the huge impact of a meteorite on the surface of Mars, material from the planet was ejected into outer space. This material travelled through space until, due to the force of gravity of our planet, or because we encounter these fragments throughout our career, and they eventually fell into our planet.

Except for the Apollo missions and the nearly 380 kg of lunar samples they brought back to Earth, this is the only way we have to be able to touch a piece from another planet.

Delivered with the display box with stand.

At Expometeoritos, we take care of dissemination, talks, workshops, analyses, classification and exhibitions of meteorites.

We are members of:
.- IMCA (International Meteorite Collectors Association) #8187
.- Meteoritical Society
.- American Meteor Society
All our pieces are certified and besides, we provide the analysis of the chemical composition of each piece, using X-ray spectrography.
