TEACHERS' FAVORITE This wonderful collectors'
set features twelve different specimens, of which ten are genuine
meteorites and two are impactites (impact glasses created by ancient
meteorite events on Earth). All of the major meteorite types are
represented: stone, iron, and stony-iron. Of particular interest
are a piece of the Chelyabinsk meteorite that
created the famous fireball seen over Russia during February of
2013 [pictured below] and the "Star Wars" meteorite,
Tatahouine, a rare diogenite that is believed to have formed within
the giant asteroid Vesta.
The twelve pieces are each enclosed within individual clear plastic
specimen boxes, and housed in attractive padded display case,
with hinged top. A laminated full color insert describes each
of the specimens, including its classification, and location and
date of find. Each individual specimen box is individually lettered
on the bottom, and that letter corresponds to a listing on the
color insert, so specimens can be removed and studied without
getting mixed up. And the Visitors From Space
set comes complete with a certificate of authenticity and an exclusive
photo, both personally signed by Geoff of Meteorite Men,
and one of Geoff's Aerolite Meteorites stickers. A great collectible
for science enthusiasts and Meteorite Men fans of all
ages. Visitors From Space is also a fantastic introduction to
the amazing world of meteorites and meteorite collecting.
