Description


Saint-Aubin iron meteorite (IIIAB) slice with a massive inclusion, weighing 97.2 grams and measuring approximately 95 mm x 77 mm x 3 mm. Saint-Aubin is a rare European iron meteorite, first discovered in France in 1968 by farmers ploughing a field. In twenty-five years in the business, this was the first time our meteorite specialist, Geoff Notkin, had ever seen an example of Saint-Aubin in person! And it was worth the wait. After acquiring a complete mass, it took months of precision laboratory work to cut, polish, etch, and meticulously stabilize this valuable material. Saint-Aubin exhibits an exquisite, fine and highly geometric Widmanstätten pattern, and this slice also boasts an extremely large iron sulphide inclusion. Other features include Neumann lines and schriebersite needles. A very rare opportunity to acquire a rare and highly unusual European iron meteorite of uncommon beauty. Accompanied by a specimen identification card from Aerolite Meteorites.
