Lot 4007

Beautiful Admire pallasite meteorite, found in Kansas in 1881. This 'nugget' meteorite weighs 109.4 grams and measures approximately 55 mm x 40 mm x 45 mm. Admire's name made waves when hosts Geoff Notkin and Steve Arnold of Meteorite Men pulled a hefty 223-pound 'Alpha' (Admire) pallasite out of the ground on season two, episode one of Meteorite Men—that monster made it through the back-and-forth between Geoff and Steve and remains intact. This lovely 'nugget' is from the same strewnfield, but altogether different rock. The 'nuggets' are created when the pallasite is being stabilized. It truly looks like a visitor from outer space! Accompanied by a certificate of authenticity signed by Geoff Notkin of Aerolite Meteorites Inc. and the TV show Meteorite Men, as well as a specimen identification card.

Estimate: $1000-$1200
