American Meteorite Museum Brick, Harvey Nininger, Historic Route 66

Description

This is a genuine piece of brick from the walls of Harvey Nininger's American Meteorite Museum on the old Route 66 near Meteor Crater in rural Arizona. Now you can own a piece of meteorite history - a brick from the building where modern meteoritics was born. All that remains now of the museum is a crumbling ruin - a shadow of it's former self and a piece of American scientific history. The photos show the museum many years ago and how it appears today.

Refer to the photos. The black centimeter cube is shown for scale and is not included. You are purchasing a piece of brick like the one shown. It weighs approx. 5 grams and is about 1 inch long. Note, I have several similar pieces and you get one. Your piece may vary slightly in appearance.
