This is a really neat item!  This is 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 collector!

The weight of this meteorite is approximately 1.5 grams.  It measures nearly 1/2 inch in length at the longest point. Included with this 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 sight to see it coming down through the air as a brilliant fireball!  Check

Another really awesome piece of information that is special to this Russian meteorite is that on the year anniversary of 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 received a special gold medal that actually has pieces of the Chelyabinsk meteorite incorporated into it!  This meteorite is a fascinating piece of history!
