Details

This is a genuine Iron Nickel Nantan meteorite with an acrylic display stand, metal label and certificate of authenticity.   The weight of this meteorite 40.8 grams (about 1.4 ounces).  It measures 1 1/4 inches in length, 1 1/2 inch in width and 1/2 inch in thickness at the thickest point. Nantans contain a trace amount of chlorine which causes them to oxidize more quickly than other meteorites.  That's what gives them their unique and beautiful brownish-red color.   

Due to this fact, we do not recommend cutting and polishing these pieces.   They need to be protected at least once a year by soaking them in mineral oil.  This is a great gift for meteorite collectors!
