.................... IOM ExchangeThe
Jay Piatek Meteorite Collection is one of thelargest andmost
diverse.Dr. Piatek was quite aggressive in hisprocurement
adding manyspecimens to his collection that were felt to
be impossible to acquire. Most were added via institutional exchanges
that required much time and effort.. Most of the specimens
thereforeare of museum quality and with excellent
provenance.Over the years Dr. Jay Piatek has acquired
many main masses. Some of the morerenowned being,NWA
7034 "Black Beauty", the new Martian basaltic breccia,
Milton, Zinder, Jaybird Springs,and many more. He holds many
locations individually. His collectioncurrentlyhouses
56 unique pallasite locations for instance. For reference, a
large selection of specimens in the collection can be viewed simply
by searching "jay piatek meteorite" in Google Images.
Dr. Piatekhas recently decided to specialize the collection and reduce many of the early holdings.This is your chance to obtain a specimen from this highlyregarded collection. All sales will come with a laminated JayPiatek Meteorite Collection Card illustratingthe meteorites'name, class ,specimen weight, total known weight,as well as the important criteria-provenance which in Dr Piatek's opinion should be one of the most importantfactors to consider before one purchases a specimen. So purchase from a trusted source and pass down a small piece of meteorite history from his collection to yours.Specimen for sale is as pictured in this listing.
