Meteorites!

Poor Linda wrote off the car yesterday: luckily (and amazingly, seeing the condition of it) she was totally unhurt.

For the time being, therefore, I'm in the office cataloguing and labelling our new season meteorite stock: we have never had such good items on our inventory, ranging from large (1cm x 1cm) slices of lunar and Martian meteorites, to large irons from a number of falls to polished slices of some rare and beautiful pallasites. Prices start at as little as £5 for a small common chondrite up to thousands for kilo-mass irons. Our customers have included astronauts, famous astronomers, TV presenters and a few film and pop stars!

Here are a few of the new items - many more at our website, plus a full range of meteorite jewellery!
