today a special AD on my website, I put on sale 17 specimens (complete slices and endcut) of the historic Draveil meteorite (France, about 20km of Paris), fell 13 jully 2011 ! All come with a fragment of the tile this hammer stone broked :


These 16 complete slices and the endcut have been profesionaly sliced by Montana Lab Meteorite, with a wire saw (alcohol cutting to avoid rust), and polished.

They come from the very first 205g specimen of this famous french meteorite, found just after the fall in jully 2011 in Draveil, more than 2 month before the few other fragments were recovered (one part of this broked stone is at MNHN-Paris, my slices come from the other fragment of this hammer) ! So you can be sure you will have the better specimens of this fall here...

Most of the specimens found after october are in the MNHN-Paris collection (and displayed at the "Grande Gallerie de l??volution"), no-one is avialable to meteorite collector communauty. This page is probably the only chance ever to obatain a specimen!
