JUVINAS, France w/ Rare Provenance
An important eucrite from France with uncommon provenance from Babes Bolyai University, Romania. Specimen is accompanied by a numbered museum tray and original label (folded) from the University's Museum of Mineralogy. Specimen weighs 0.42 grams and exhibits a small patch of fusion crust.
TIRHERT - 11.8 grams
Tirhert is simply of the most beautiful meteorites available to collectors today. It is a witnessed achondrite with gorgeous, glassy, partially translucent fusion crust, and a stunning interior composed mostly of white plagioclase and tan pyroxene grains.
ST. MICHEL - 26.5 grams
An excellent example of this Finnish witnessed fall with beautiful brecciation, black shock veins, and fusion crust. This fragment measures approx. 47 x 30 x 17 mm and originates from Harvard University by way of Bill Kroth (Cosmic Matter). An original copy of Borgstrom's monograph on St. Michel (in background) is included with this stellar fragment gratis.
ODESSA - 123.9 grams
A handsome, stable example of this crater-making iron, uncleaned with a patina that reminds me of chocolate truffles. It also carries provenance from the University of New Mexico's Institute of Meteoritics and can be found listed in at least one of their meteorite collection catalogs.
19th c. GREGORY EPHEMERA/OFFPRINTS
A three-piece lot of scarce publications by James Gregory (1832 - 1899) that includes an early educational pamphlet on meteorites (c1890), a two-page offprint on the Daniel's Kuil meteorite from 1868, and a two-page offprint on two French meteorites (Aubres and Mornans) from 1887 with a short correction penned by the hand of Gregory himself.
COLE CREEK, Nebraska Specimens
I just listed the last five specimens of this beautiful chondrule-rich, Nebraskan chondrite. At only $4 a gram, these last specimens should not last long. Click photo to be taken to all available specimens.
BIBLIOTHEQUE BRITTANIQUE (1776-1806) including Thomson's historic etching
A large set of original volumes of Marc-Auguste Pictet's scientific journal, Bibliotheque Brittanique. Pictet's journal played an important role in the foundation of meteoritics, allowing crucial information regarding the fall of stones, along with among many other scientific topics, to cross channels throughout Europe. Examples include early reports Siena, King's abstract on his book about Siena and Wold Cottage, Chladni on the Pallas iron (Krasnojarsk), Biot's early report on l'Aigle, Alais, and many more. Perhaps most notably is Thomson's historic etching of a meteorite, which predates von Widmanstatten's discovery by four years. Further reading on Thomson's historic discovery can be found by clicking >>HERE<<
This beautiful set contains a total of 30 volumes spanning the years 1776-1806. Three volumes are missing, though the missing volumes do not contain any meteorite-related reports. For further information regarding this set, please contact me.
