Seller: mr-meteorite (3.904) 100%, Location: Peoria, Arizona, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 321758831054 My name is Ruben Garcia aka MrMeteorite and I’m a meteorite dealer/collector. I have dealt in meteorites for 17 years and it’s been a wonderful ride. I’ve been featured in many books and magazines about meteorites, like Sky and Telescope, Discover, Iguana, Meteorite Times, and even the latest book by O. Richard and Dorothy Norton, called “What’s so Mysterious about Meteorites?” I’ve also appeared in such TV shows as, Meteorite Men, Nova Science NOW, Cash and Treasures, and the United Stats of America with Hosts “The Sklar Brothers”. Of course, I’ve also been the subject of newspapers all across the country and various NPR and BBC radio shows. I typically sell to high profile museums and universities all over the world. Everything I sell here is guaranteed just as if I were selling to a museum. Payment is due upon auctions end, unless you contact me and want to wait a few days to bid on more items in order to combine shipping. I include a business card sized label that describes each particular specimen! Payment is due upon auction end. Bid with confidence as all my auctions are guaranteed! This meteorite is VERY rare. So rare in fact that - including this one - only 9 small specimens with a classification of L(LL)3 exist and the total weight of all known L(LL)3 specimens is only about 8.7 kilos. Of course most of this material has been sold to museums and universities for study and I only have about a kilo left. After Dr Garvie at Arizona State University finished the classification he said this about NWA 10102 L(LL)3 Meteorite. "Hi Ruben, Your stone is now approved as an L(LL)3 as NWA 10102. I think this is something unusual as the various pieces of data together failed to point to a specific ordinary chondrite group. The oxygen isotopes are clearly LL, the olivine centered around L and the pyroxenes as H. Also, it’s a petrologic grade 3, probably around 3.6. There is still Cr in the olivine and also some purple-red glass still present.
