Stony-Iron (MES) mesosiderite.
The Estherville meteorite fell on May 10, 1879 in Emmet County, Iowa.
A large shower of stones fell, numbering in the thousands. Over 300
kilograms were recovered. This mesosiderite is beautiful, nice matrix
of olivine-rich silicates and metal throughout. This is a very historic
American fall that no collection is complete without.
These pieces are all perfect little metal nuggets, very highly sought
after by collectors and quite hard to get. I acquired all of these specimens
in an exchange with the Natural History Museum in London England. They
are all from collection #65575. These are the top 1% of the top 1% in
beauty, shape, and quality. I chose them out of the entire batch, so
they don't get better. They are nit cheap, but high quality never is.
