About Iron and Stone Meteorites

Meteorites are meteors that survive passage through the earth’s atmosphere such that part of the meteors strikes the ground. More than 90 percent of meteorites are made of stone, while the remainder consist partly or wholly of iron and nickel. We sell both Iron and Stone Meteorites. Stone meteorites do usually have some iron in them and show some magnetism just not as much as Iron meteorites. Stone meteorites often have chondrules in them which are round grains. Chondrules form as molten or partially molten droplets in space before being accreted to their parent object. Meteorites conprised of chondrules are called chondrites.

We are proud to offer a small collection of rare” Class L/LL 6 Stone Meteorites” named Holbrook Fall which we purchased from an estate in Holbrook, Arizona. If you have any questions about meteorites please contact us.
