Everyone shares a fascination with meteorites, and how could we not? Meteorites are visitors from outer space that have landed, by accident, on our planet. They have mystified and amazed humans for as long as we’ve been looking up at the night sky. Ancient peoples revered meteorites as gifts (or sometimes warnings!) from the gods. Today, collectors prize meteorites because of their rarity and their other-worldly origins, while researchers study them for clues to the formation of the solar system and origins of life on Earth.
Meteorites are divided into three main classes — irons, stones, and stony-iron. Plus, the magnificent impactites — remnants of an ancient and cataclysmic meteorite impact. The From Eternity To Here Collectors Four Pack Collectible allows you to study and enjoy genuine examples of all the major meteorite types (separate listing). This individual is out of the four pack and includes the impactite category. Included is an informational paragraph on each type on the reverse side of every box.
