HOW TO BUY A METEORITE
Meteorites are rare and valuable, both to scientists and collectors. Meteorites are less common than gold, platinum, diamonds, or even emeralds! Museum quality meteorites can cost thousands of dollars, but at Aerolite Meteorites we believe in offering quality specimens to suit all budgets. All pieces pictured on this page are priced at under $200. Every meteorite we sell comes with a hand made specimen ID card and is guaranteed 100% authentic and as described. Please see our contact and ordering page for more information. The scale cube pictured in some images measures 1 cm.

BASSIKOUNOU
H5 Witnessed fall, Bassikounou, Hodh Ech Chargui, Mauritania. October 16, 2006
After a fireball a stone of 3,165 grams was found on October 16 near the small town of Bassikounou in Mauritania. A search of the surrounding area, numerous additional stones were found, most of them quite small. Bassikounou is extremely fresh with a weathering grade of 0. Most stones exhibit unusually fine fusion crust, and interesting shapes.

CAMEL DONGA
Eucrite, achondrite
Camel Donga is a very rare eucrite, found in a remote strewnfield in Western Australia. Most recovered stones are quite small, and the fragile nature of eucrites means many recovered stones were broken on impact. Note the extremely shiny black fusion crust, reminiscent of freshly applied enamel paint. Camel Donga is one of the very few meteorites that will not stick to a magnet, as eucrites contain little or no metal. Recent research in meteoritics and astronomy has most experts convinced that Camel Donga meteorites originated on the asteroid Vesta.

LIBYAN DESERT GLASS
Impact glass
Libyan Desert Glass is a rare and beautiful impact glass, found in only one remote location on Earth, near the Libyan/Egyptian border. It is associated with an ancient meteorite impact, which occurred somewhere in the North African deserts. These outstanding specimens came from a colleague who has close ties with Egypt. They were acquired years ago, before the ban on hunting was enacted by the Egyptian government. We have noticed a sharp decline in quality material available.

NORTHWEST AFRICAN UNCLASSIFIED CHONDRITES "NWA XXX"
Stone meteorite (H and L chondrites)
These stone meteorites were found in the Saharan Desert in Northwest Africa, likely by nomads. In order to classify them it would be necessary to cut off a section for analysis. Although they are exceedingly rare when compared to terrestrial rocks, these are the most abundant type of meteorite and are referred to as "common chondrites." H and L (designating the amount of metal contained) type chondrites have been already extensively studied, and so these attractive stones have been left intact. Composed largely of spherical grain-like silicate chondrules, these stone meteorites were likely once part of the crust of a planet or large asteroid. Some academics believe that chondrules are older than the solar system!

Good quality complete stones likes those pictured below are very difficult to obtain. Most specimens found in the Sahara today, are small broken fragments.

SEYMCHAN
Pallasite, Magadan, Russia
We are pleased to offer specimens of the olivine-rich Russian pallasite Seymchan. Originally classified as an iron (IIE), new Seymchan finds have produced fabulous pallasitic material. As well as an abundance of colorful olivine clusters. Seymchan is completely stable and its current price is far below that of similar pallasites. We acquired this material directly from the finder in Russia, and are therefore able to offer it at a very reasonable price. With comparable pallasites like Glorieta Mountain selling at $50/gram and Esquel at $40/gram, this beautiful material is the most affordable quality pallasite in the world today.

SIKHOTE-ALIN (INDIVIDUALS)
Iron Meteorite (IIAB)
As a collector and enthusiast, Sikhote-Alin is easily our favorite meteorite. The Sikhote-Alin shower of 1947 took place in a remote area of eastern Russia and was the largest single meteoritic event documented in modern times. It is an extremely rare witnessed fall iron, and many individuals display the classic characteristics of meteorites: regmaglypts, orientation, rollover lips, and even impact pits from in-flight collisions with other meteorites! Sikhote-Alin is an extremely stable and affordable meteorite. Once relatively available in the marketplace, intensive hunting at the fall site has resulted in the area being completely hunted out, and no new specimens now make it into collectors' hands. What we have now is all we will ever have.

Some of our favorite meteorites are the Sikhote-Alins with distinct flight markings (orientation, nose cone, rollover lip or flow lines), in part because we love being able to determine at least a small portion of a meteorite's flight history.
