TWANNBERG

The very first fragment was found on May 1984 in a field after ploughing. Then an additional mass was found by Marc Jost in a box in th
attic of an old house in August 2000. And then a third mass was found in September 2005 in a rock collecton.

A dedicated team of meteorite-hunters decided then that there had to be more and after many years of research they did find more, but much
smaller fragments, that they presented this year at the Ensisheim Show.
Twannberg is only the 8th meteorite known for Switzerland

It is also one of only 6 meteorites ever classified as an IIG, hexahedrite to Coarsest Octahedrite.
Whole individuals, slices, and endcuts are available at a very reasonable price considering how rare a meteorite class it is

and how much efforts when into its recovery.

CLIFFORD 

A single stone, weighing some 11.36kg, was found sometimes in the early 1960s in rangeland in central Colorado while looking
for arrowheads. He brought it home but thinking that it was just an odd looking rock he added it to his wife's rock garden. And it
stayed there until 1997 when Gary Curtiss, a Colorado geologist and meteorite collector happened to go by and spotted it. He
immediately recognized it for what it was, bought it and had it classified by Alan Rubin at UCLA. But then he kept most of it for himself!
Until very recently, when I finally convinced him to get a few slices cut and made available ot collectors.
Clifford is an ordinary chondrite, type L6, Shock S3, Weathering W2, with some large chondrules, metal blebs, and odd tiny vugs.
Whole list and collector-friendly prices below.

9 slices available, I could break one if there are requests.
At a very reasonable, customer-friendlly, non-gouging price.
