Allende (CV3)

On February 8th 1969, the heavens opened up and blessed the people of nearby Pueblito de Allende with what is perhaps the best and most famous Carbonaceous Chondrite to have landed on this planet. The Allende meteorite entered the atmosphere at approximately 1:05am and created a huge fireball before shattering and raining down to the ground. Officially to date, over 2 metric tons have been collected, with some estimates exceeding that estimate two fold. Allende is famous for it CAI’s, wonderful chondrules, and great fusion crust.

For sale are several nice big slices and some stones ranging in size and price.  Each slice comes in a labeled meteorite display box.
