Carbonaceous Chondrites are a very important type of meteorite and are known to contain some of the building blocks of life on Earth.

Carbonaceous chondrites or C chondrites are a class of chondritic meteorites comprising at least 8 known groups and many ungrouped meteorites. They include some of the most primitive known meteorites. The C chondrites represent only a small proportion (4.6%) of meteorite falls.

This type of meteorite includes some of the most FAMOUS meteorites ever discovered, including legendary meteorites such as Allende and Murchison.

 You will also receive a signed certificate of authenticity - complete with a sophisticated holographic serial number - and an exclusive free gift - an illustrated A4 meteorite information sheet.
This was written by Mark Ford - Chairman of the BIMS (British And Irish Meteorite Society) and gives a useful overview of meteorites.
( I am also a member of BIMS)
It will offer no revelations to a dedicated meteorite buff, but will be indispensable for a complete novice

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

I have been buying and selling meteorites and meteorite jewellery for nearly 20 years and am well known, especially for my meteorite jewellery.
