Meteorites for Sale and other things

Pultusk (H5)

On January 30, 1868, near the small town of Pultusk, Poland, a number of people observed a large fireball plummeting through the night sky. The fireball broke apart in a series of detonations and produced a sizable shower of small fragments, known as Pultusk Peas, across an area of more than 127 km. The total known weight of the meteorite is estimated to be around 250 kg.

The Pultusk meteorite is classified as an H chondrite. It is veined and brecciated, and the specimens are rich in xenolith. The specimens for sale are recent finds in Pultusk and have 140 years of weathering. The matrix has darkened in that time.
