Description

(NOTE - these collection kits are custom made to order for each buyer. There is a 3-5 business day lead time on this item before I can ship it out - please keep this in mind when ordering and take this delay into account.)

This handsome display case (14" x 8" x 2") has a black pebblegrain finish over wood and a glass lid. Underneath the glass lid in a black foam cutout (reversible to white) are 36 different meteorite specimens. Each specimen comes in a labeled gemjar. The labels are facing up in the gemjars, so the specimens can be identified easily without removing the jars from the display. Of course, each specimen can be removed and handled if desired.

This is an entire meteorite collection in one kit. This would make an ideal starter collection, outreach prop or teaching tool. It's also a good way to acquire a large number of rare types and falls to fill holes in an existing collection.

Refer to the photos. The small black cube in the first photo is a 1-cm scale cube and is shown for size comparison. The black scale cube is not included.
