Description


Particles from the Zagami Martian meteorite, totaling 1/10 carat, presented in a clear glass vial suspended in a 2.5 x 2.5 x 2.5 acrylic cube. In fine condition. Accompanied by a booklet entitled Mars: Owner’s Manual. The Zagami meteorite, weighing 40 pounds, plummeted to earth on October 3, 1962, landing in Nigeria. In 1995, testing revealed that pockets of gas trapped within the meteorite matched the composition of the Martian atmosphere, proving that it originated from Mars. These types of meteorites are supremely rare—of over 61,000 meteorites that have been found on Earth, 120 have been identified as Martian. A superb interplanetary collectible. RR Auction COA.
