Meteorite | Chondrite | 3585gCode: 108
Product detailed description
Picture owning a piece of the cosmos – a chondrite – one of the oldest known materials in our solar system, now available in our collection. This isn't just any piece, but a large and substantial one that has journeyed through the vast expanse of space for billions of years before landing on Earth's surface.
These chondrites, formed approximately 4.56 billion years ago, a few million years after the birth of the solar system, stand as one of the oldest known substances in the cosmos you can touch. Remaining untouched and unchanged since their formation, they provide us a glimpse into the primitive materials that constituted the planets, including our very own Earth.
Though chondrites are the most commonly found meteorites on Earth, this specific piece will captivate you with its inmpressive shape and weight of more than 3,5 kg.
The dark crust of this rock serves as a fascinating testament to its extraterrestrial origin.
The thrill of holding such a piece, one of the few that has made its extraordinary journey to Earth, is genuinely exhilarating.
