Covert (Kansas) stone meteorite slice with one polished face. The full slice weighs 207.4 grams and measures approximately 205 mm x 95 mm x 4 mm. This historic stone meteorite was recognized in 1929 by pioneering meteorite researcher H. H. Nininger. A search was conducted and a total of ten meteorites were recovered from the area—some had been used by locals as door stops, weights, and fill for a concrete floor. This gorgeous slice displays a wealth of metal flecks in a velvety night sky matrix. Accompanied by a certificate of authenticity signed by Geoff Notkin of Aerolite Meteorites Inc. and the TV show Meteorite Men. Noted expert and "Meteorite Man" Geoff Notkin educates us on his adventures worldwide as a meteorite hunter in this podcast.
