SIKHOTE-ALIN IRON METEORITES FOR SALE
Top quality AAA-grade sculptural specimens, really the best of the best

SIKHOTE-ALIN SUPER PREMIUM INDIVIDUALS
Iron Meteorite (IIAB)
The majority of these specimens have been admired and adored in an old collection for many years and are among the very best we have seen in almost fifteen years of specializing in this fabulous Russian meteorite. These outstanding individuals have truly extraordinary shapes. We do not expect to ever again see specimens of a comparable quality and these are the best of the best. The Sikhote-Alin meteorites presented on this page are pristine examples, not the poor quality, pitted and rust-damaged B and C-grade individuals being offered elsewhere, some of which have been acid-washed, causing them to lose important surface features.

NOTE TO COLLECTORS: Our close personal friends and colleagues in Russia have advised us that no new material will ever be found at the Sikhote-Alin site. We have watched supplies of this alluring meteorite dry up completely during the last few years. Our remaining stock of A-grade specimens is all we will ever have. If you wish to acquire an example of this iconic witnessed fall iron, the time to do so is now. We cannot acquire any new Sikhote-Alin individuals and prices continue to rise on this exceptional material.


As collectors and enthusiasts, 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.

These pieces are very rare — they have not been cleaned and still have their attractive, natural ochre patina.
