CARBONADO: “Giant Black Diamonds of Mysterious Origin May Hail from Space!” said the headline in the New York Times article in the Science Times section of September 17, 1996. These black diamonds, known as carbonadoes, are found primarily in the Central African Republic and in Brazil, and their origins have been debated extensively. Recent findings suggest that the isotopic signatures found in carbonadoes is quite like that of micro extra-solar diamonds found in meteorites, and it has been proposed that all the evidence is suggestive of their formation as a new class of meteorites. SORRY: ALL SOLD OUT!

RIES CRATER ROCK - Bopfingen, Nordlinger Ries, Bavaria, Germany 
Rock fragments from the Nordlinger Ries crater! Much has been written about this huge area that shows extensive brecciation and scattering of large blocks of limestone, containing several unsual SiO2 polymorphs such as stishovite and coesite, and odd carbon polymorphs such as chaoite. Here's an opportunity to add a specimen to your collection, nodular masses from about 35mm up to 125mm across, priced at only 15.00, 25.00, 40.00, and 65.00 each. Neat stuff! 

MOLDAVITE - Locenice, Bohemia, Czech Republic
Excellent, bottle-green gemmy tektites from this famous area. Tektites are reputed to be either extra-terrestrial in origin, or the result of the violent impact of meteorites upon the earth's surface.

FERROMERRILLITE - Los Angeles Martian Basalt, Shergottite Meteorite, Found 1999, California
This exceptionally rare NEW SPECIES oocurs here as minute aggregates in the 1999 find of the Los Angeles meteorite, a rare Martian basaltic shergottite! Only two small LA meteorite samples were discovered, and subsequent study of the Shergotty meteorite and this material has led to the recent IMA-approval (#2006-039) of this new phosphate mineral. Formula: Ca9NaFe(PO4)7; author's studied material, ONLY ONE individual grain available, in a 5mm probe mount @ 450.00, accompanied by superbly documented full quantitative chemistry and SEM image as well.

GROSSITE - Acfer 214 CH Meteorite, Aguemour, Sahara Desert, Algeria

This is a 6mm probe mount from the Acfer 214 carbonaceous chondrite meteorite discovered in 1991. The microprobed sample is accompanied by two carefully mapped SEM images and complete quantitative chemistry of the grossite, typically associated with forsterite and occasionally other species. A great rarity @ 625.00.

IRON (native/"telluric") - Disko Island, nr. Ovikak, Greenland
From the classic locality for terrestrial iron, we have a selection of small specimens showing typical brown oxidized matrix and admixed native iron comprising these thin thumbnails. Proportedly from the Bosch Collection, these average about 1.5cm across at just 20.00 each for these small fragments mounted in a TN box.

Specimens < 1cm in TN boxes @ $45 each.

KEILITE - Abee EH3 Meteorite, Fell June 9, 1953, Alberta, Canada
This NEW SPECIES has been discovered in the Abee meteorite, an enstatite chondrite (EH3) that fell here on June 9, 1953. The mineral occurs as minute inclusions in small sections of kamacite-containing enstatite, occasionally with minor roedderite. Formula: (Fe,Mg)S - and each sample is a small fragment mounted in a 5mm probe mount and accompanied by two SEM images and full quantitative chemistry! Only one of these superbly documented samples available @ 240.00 each.

KOSMOCHLOR - Maw-Sit-Sit, Myanmar
This rare mineral occurs as dense, deep emerald green masses comprising matrix, the chromium analog of jadeite. Only a few small samples available from this obscure locality, sizes averaging about 0.8cm @ 40.00 each.

LAWRENCEITE - Nantan, Guangxi Province, PR China
This rare, typically extraterrestrial Fe-Ni chloride mineral is one of the most deliquescent phases known, and by definition is easily capable of turning to liquid by absorption of atmospheric humidity. We have only a few carefully sealed glass capillary tubes of evil green lawrencite solution that oozed from the Nantan Meteorite, the equivalent of (forgive me) unoxidized meteorite pus! Only a two 2cm thin capillaries available @ 40.00 each, or a larger vial @ 75.00.

MAJORITE - Chantonnay, Vendee, France
Perhaps the rarest of all garnets, these XRD-verified majorites are found as small 2mm aggregates in the Chantonnay meteorite which fell on August 5, 1812! We have again obtained two verified samples (<1mm), each completely documented with X-ray powder diffraction data (intensities, d-spaces, hkl) and the associated spectra @ 295.00 per documented sample. Rare!

NIERITE in INDARCH METEORITE, Fell April 7, 1891, - Shusha, Elisavetpol, Azerbaijan
This extremely rare mineral occurs as submicroscopic aggregates very sparsely scattered in this enstatite chondrite that fell in 1891, one of only four meteorites in which this species has been found and the only known estatite chondrite in the group! Approved in 1994, only a couple small (<3mm) samples available @ 65.00 each.

RINGWOODITE - L6 Meteorite, Debaca Co., New Mexico
Microscopic glassy inclusions of ringwoodite sparsely scattered in dark brownish black matrix of the Taiban meteorite, possibly with glassy "maskelynite" as well. Found in 1934, a small blocky section about 1.3cm @ 85.00

ROEDDERITE - Wichita County Octahedrite Meteorite, Kansas
Small grains <1mm in capsule. ID by Ed Olsen.

SCHREIBERSITE - Sao Juliao de Moreira Meteorite, Ponte de Linia, Minho, Portugal
This iron-nickel phosphide is found almost exclusively in meteorites, but usually in nearly microscopic aggregates. Occuring in this octahedrite meteorite found in 1883, we have pure granular pale yellow metallic masses ranging in size from sub-millemeter to several millimeters across. Offered as fine grained mass in a capsule for 20.00, or several larger fragments also in a capsule @ 35.00.

STANFIELDITE - Bahin Pallasite Meteorite, Found 1810, Minsk, Belarus
This tiny specimen is in a 5mm probe mount and is accompanied by an SEM photo and complete quantitative analysis from the microprobe process. Only one specimen is available @ 295.00.

SUESSITE - DAG 319 Meteorite, Dar al Gani, Sahara Desert, Libya
This exceptionally rare species is found here as minute inclusions in olivine, discovered in the rare Dar al Gani 319 meteorite that was found in 1997. The meteorite itself, an uncommon type 3 polymict ureilite, was uncovered with only 740 grams in existence! The suessite samples are small polished fragments in probe mounts, accompanied by two SEM images and complete analytical chemistry performed for each individual. Only one available, superbly documented, @ 350.00 each.

TAENITE - Olmetta, Corsica, France
Micro in serpentine, 2cm.

TROILITE - Alta Mine, Del Norte Co., California
From one of only two terrestrial occurences of the species, we have several small troilite samples comprised of metallic masses from a serpentine shear zone near Crescent City, these being relatively pure but likely with some included magnetite as well. Specimen sizes range from about 0.7cm to < 2cm @ 20.00, 35.00 and 50.00 each.

TUITE - Tenham L6-S6 Meteorite, Tenham Station, Australia
This relatively NEW and rare species occurs here as microscopic transparent grains filling small voids in carefully prepared, small sections of the Tenham meteorite, an olivine-hypersthene chondrite (L-6,S-6) that fell in 1879. Recently discovered here, we have only a couple meticulously documented samples that include two SEM images, full quantitative chemistry and optics as well, accompanying 5mm probe mounts containing single grains of complex kamacite, troilite and occasionally ringwoodite or other specuies. A gamma-Ca3(PO4)2 phase, approved in 2001 but unavailable until now, just two one on hand @ 360.00 each.
