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 represents a different meteorite type and comes in a labeled gemjar. The labels are facing up, 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 collection is composed of meteorites from the United States of America. All 36 specimens were found within the borders of the USA and many of them are witnessed falls. There are also some historic and rare localities not commonly seen on the collector market. Some of these pieces are selected from my personal collection cabinet.
Each specimen is a micromount with a labeled gemjar, The gemjar can be opened, and the specimen inside can be removed or handled if desired. Each specimen is unique and prepared for this kit, so the actual appearance of any given specimen may vary slightly from those shown in the photo.
