Stony Iron Meteorites - historic specimens
Estherville, Emmet County, Iowa
Iowa, United States
2.6 x 1.7 x 1.5 CM (thumbnail)
price: $950
new year 2021

Historic Meteorites with impressive provenance. From G.F. Kunz collection to Amherst college to Warren Johansson (in 1931). Three fragments of Iron meteorite total weight of 19.9 grams, the largest 2.6 CM across, these each have a distinctly different look, a very interesting suite. From the famed May 10th 1879 fall at Estherville, Iowa. Two of the pieces have had some areas ground revealing the bright metallic interior. This was a witnessed fall and was quite famed at that time. The historic details seen on line differ in many details (like this was a 744 pound mass or a 455 pound mass). All accounts do agree this was an exploding meteorite and a spectacular event. Verified fragments are quite rare and well valued.
