Canyon Diablo:

Meteorites Canyon Diablo are fragments of an asteroid that hit Earth 50,000 years ago, creating the Meteor Crater, also known as Barringer, near the now called Devil's Canyon, in Arizona, USA. The impact was produced by a large asteroid of ferric composition leaving one of the most spectacular and largest craters known, as well as a multitude of metal pieces scattered in the vicinity.

Sericho Pallasite:

In 2016, two brothers were searching for their camels and came across several large, dense stones west of the village of Habaswein and south of Sericho, Kenya. Since 2017 this meteorite has been available for the public and has become a must-have in every meteorite collection.

NWA Eucrite Achondrite:

Eucrites are the most abundant type of basaltic achondrite. The eucrites are strongly linked with the diogenites and howardites; the three groups are collectively known as HED meteorites and may come from asteroid 4 Vesta (References: MeteoLunar and Planetary Institute (LPI)). This eucrite shows a beautiful and small fusion crust.
