The rocks from the cosmos mostly consist of silicate minerals or an iron-nickel alloy. When entering the earth‘s atmosphere, a part of the material burns up, creating the typical and fascinating character of a meteorite. Chondrites are the largest group of meteorites, named after the small silicate globules they contain, the chondrules, which are surrounded by a fine-grained groundmass. Besides the various minerals olivine, pyroxene and plagioclase, they usually also contain metallic nickel iron and iron sulphide. By measuring radioactive isotopes, it was possible to determine that chondrites were already formed in the early days of the solar system 4.5 billion years ago. The meteorite Dronino, on the other hand, is a nickel-iron meteorite that was found south of Moscow in the Ryazan oblast. Under the assumption that the meteorite shattered when it entered the Earth‘s atmosphere, more than 250 fragments with a total weight of 0.5 tonnes have been found over the years - the cosmic rock probably once weighed 1.5 tonnes. The spectacular impact is assumed to have occurred in the year 1200 after the turn of the millennium. Also on offer for sale - an authentic Canyon Diablo meteorite from Arizona, dating 4.55 billion years, an authentic Lunar sample and a Martian basalt meteorite.
