Planet dust MARS - 1 g

Description
Planet dust MARS - 1 g
Morocco

An opportunity to have a piece of planet Mars in your hands.
Glass container with 1 gram of dust from planet Mars, obtained from NWA 12269 (Sergotite) meteorite.

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 of another planet.

Delivered with the display box with stand.

At Expometeoritos, we take care of dissemination, talks, workshops, analysis, 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 we also provide the chemical composition analysis, carried out in our facilities by X-ray spectrography, if the value of the piece exceeds €300.
