Morasko

For Sale

        This meteorite was found in 1914.     Soldiers, digging trenches 10km to the North of Poznan, unearthed a 77.5kg piece of iron which was identified as a meteorite.  Further
pieces were discovered from time to time, but it wasn't before the late 1950's that the ponds and pits near the find locations were thought to be impact craters.   The Morasko crater field consists of 8 craters between 5m and 110m.   It is one of only 15 meteorites associated with impact craters larger than 10 meters.   This meteorite was classified as an octahedrite, coarse (2.5mm), IA.    Morasko was re-classified as a IIICD iron by CHOI et al. in 1995.    Most pieces found have been large, it is rare to find small individuals.
    Last couple times this has sold out very quick.
