2013, Chelyabinsk, Russia

Main Mineral/ Name Meteorite: Chelyabinsk
Mineral Form/ Type Meteorite: Chondrite meteorite, famous observed fall
Weight: 4.2 g
Origin (Region/ City): 2013, Chelyabinsk
Origin (Country): Russia

Chelyabinsk is one of the most famous meteorites due to the variety of recordings of the fall available. It is estimated than thousands of people were injured due to the shock wave that broke many windows and roofs of houses and factories in the city of Chelyabinsk, Russia, the February 15, 2013 at 09:20 local time.

Chelyabinsk meteorites are indispensable in every collection. Despite the first rush after the fall, they are increasingly raising their price. They have a characteristic black and smooth fusion crust and white interior. Sizes vary but most common weighs are just a few grams and sometimes even less than a gram.

In this lot one piece is offered. It is mainly covered in fresh fusion crust. The clearer parts show what the interior of the rock looks like.

Weight: 4,2 grams.
