Details

This is a really neat item - it's a genuine piece of the CHELYABINSK meteorite (classified as an LL5 Chondrite) that fell on February 15, 2013 in Russia. A piece of this meteorite is a must have for any meteorite collector! The weight of this meteorite is approximately 1.0 grams and it measures nearly 1/2 inch in length at the longest point. Included with the piece is a nice display box as well as a Certificate of Authenticity.

One of the really neat things about this meteorite is that there was much video footage obtained when it fell to the Earth. It is a spectacular site to see it coming down through the air as a brilliant fireball!

Another really awesome piece of information that is special to this Russian meteorite is that on the year anniversary on the meteorite's fall (February 15, 2014), while the Olympics were taking place in Russia, any athlete that won a gold medal on that day will received a special gold medal that actually has pieces of the Chelyabinsk meteorite incorporated into it! This meteorite is a fascinating piece of history!
