Description


Desirable Morasko meteorite slice, etched and polished on both faces. The full slice weighs 170.2 grams and measures approximately 120 mm x 100 mm x 3 mm. Morasko is associated with the mysterious and alluring field of impact features in Poland, near the city of Poznan. The site is protected and some of the larger craters, lying deep in lush woodland, are filled with water and green algae giving them an otherworldly feel. An episode of the multi award-winning TV series Meteorite Men was filmed at Morasko in 2011, and Geoff and his co-host, Steve, discovered a 75-lb complete iron which was, at the time, the second-largest meteorite ever found in Poland (and the most deeply buried). Morasko irons are very rarely seen on the collectors’ market and this fine, full slice was prepared by an expert iron meteorite cutter and shows a lovely etch. Note the arresting, angular shape and crisscrossing schriebersite inclusions. The Morasko craters lie in a battlefield that saw multiple conflicts during WWI, WWII, and the Napoleonic era. A real prize for collectors of crater-forming meteorites. Accompanied by a certificate of authenticity signed by Geoff Notkin of Aerolite Meteorites Inc. and the TV show Meteorite Men, as well as a specimen identification card.
