Odessa Texas, Baby Iron Meteorite, ex-Haag

Adding to cart… The item has been added

Odessa iron meteorites were first found in the 1922 and have continued to be found in a large area near Odessa Texas. Geologists later determined that a large and very shallow depression was a meteorite impact crater that was previously overlooked because it was very old and mostly filled in with sand and rocky debris. Odessa is officially classified as an iron meteorite IAB-MG type.

The specimens being offered here are "baby irons" originally sold by Bob Haag back in the 1990's. They originally sold for less than fifty cents per gram. These are rarely seen now, but I managed to get my hands on a small lot of them. These are micromount-sized irons. They are not shale or oxide. They range in size from the smallest at about .055g to the largest being about .220g. Most are between .060g and .100g each.

This offer is for ONE (1) baby iron selected from the larger lot shown. You will get the largest one remaining at your time of purchase. Sorry, I cannot accept requests for specific pieces in the photo. I will select the biggest one for you, weigh it, and write the weight on the reverse side of the label.

Refer to the photo. The black centimeter cube is shown for scale and is not included. You are purchasing ONE (1) baby iron meteorite that comes in a labeled gemjar for safe storage.
