This quaint glass vial with a cork lid contains genuine iron meteorites, which come to us from large asteroids with molten cores that once orbited the sun between Mars and Jupiter. Catastrophic collisions within the Asteroid Belt shattered some asteroids, sending asteroidal pieces in all directions. Some of them eventually encountered Earth’s gravitational pull, resulting in a fiery journey through our atmosphere at speeds up to 100,000 miles per hour. A very desirable and collectible item that makes an out-of-this-world gift!
