I have found these to be very popular to give as Iron Wedding anniversary gifts.
I have sold loads over the last few years to people wanting to give something unusual to their spouses on their Iron Wedding Anniversary.
It seems to be a more exciting a gift than an iron or spade!
This is a lovely and unusual meteorite pyramid.
It is crafted from a fragment of a genuine unclassified Stone Chondrite meteorite - encased forever in a rich yellow lucite pyramid.
(It measures 2.5cm tall and 2cm across the base.)
The meteorite is a small Stone Chondrite meteorite
If you dont know about meteorite classification this is the most commonly found meteorite type and comes from the Asteroid belt between Mars And Jupiter
While not the rarest of meteorite types it is still a magical material and has fallen to Earth after Billions of years flying around in Space!
The fragment inside weighs roughly 2-3 grams
The one you will receive won't be this exact pyramid but they are all similar in appearance and exactly the same size
If you've never bought a meteorite before - this is a lovely item to start your collection with, and an attractive artifact for any desk or windowledge
One of the benefits of resin set meteorites is that they are protected FOREVER from any damage
Will be delivered labelled on the base.
You will also receive a signed certificate of authenticity - complete with sophisticated holographic serial number - and an exclusive free gift - an illustrated A4 meteorite information sheet.
This was written by Mark Ford - Secretary of the BIMS (British And Irish Meteorite Society) and gives a useful overview of meteorites.
It will offer no revelations to a dedicated meteorite buff, but will be indispensable for a complete novice.
As a member of BIMS - the British and Irish Meteorite Society I can fully guarantee the authenticity of every meteorite I sell.
I am proud member 0079 of the GMA - the Global Meteorite Association.
The GMA and its members also believe in expanding the general public’s awareness about and confidence in meteorites, collecting meteorites and the association itself by means of education, outreach and upholding and safeguarding the principles of the organization.
