Mars Rocks – Martian Meteorites For Sale

Mars Rocks - Martian Meteorites

Mars Rock:  Like Moon Meteorites these meteorites are among the most thought-after and rarest on the market. Our newly classified Martian meteorites, much to the collector’s delight, belong to the most aesthetic and freshest shergottites, which ever were made available. The designation for this particular mars rock is ‘Tissint’.

Through remote controlled probes scientist have learned much about the planet Mars. But we have yet to receive any samples back to Earth from there. We know the composition of the atmosphere of Mars and we have analyzed the rocks recently and currently are testing the frozen soil. But it is through a handful of meteorites found on Earth that we have our only direct contact with the Red Planet.

The three Martian meteorites recognized as very distinct from each other were Shergotty, Nakhla, and Chassigny. The form a grouplet of planetary meteorites know simply as the SNC group. Mars meteorites are now mostly placed into one of these three types. How do scientist know that a rock originated on Mars? Well it is not that difficult today. when rocks form they sometimes trap gas from the atmosphere inside. As it turns out the many rare gases like neon and argon and others have a variety of isotopes with are present along with the normal atoms.

It is by measuring the ratios of these isotopes as well as other means that a match to Mars is clearly established. Mars meteorites will always be rare. The mechanism to launch the rocks from that world and get them to ours makes large amounts getting to Earth unlikely. But fortunately for meteorite collectors some Martian meteorites have been found in recent years and it is now possible to

Mars Rock Meteorite DB 1After Apollo, it was realized that impact events on the lunar surface eject material into space that falls to Earth as meteorites. Dozens of lunar meteorites have now been found.  Nature has delivered them to Earth, without the cost of a spacecraft mission.  These are invaluable samples, because they represent a much broader region of the lunar surface. Indeed, they are launched from all areas of the Moon, including the far side of the Moon, which lies hidden from our view.

Because of the simplicity of lunar mineralogy, lunar rocks have predictable chemical compositions. We can use chemical fingerprints to identify the approximate source region of the meteorites.  Today, about one in every thousand newly discovered meteorites is a lunar meteorite, whereas the vast majority of meteorites are from the asteroid belt. Lunar meteorites like these collected in Africa and Oman are, for all practical purposes, the only source of moon rocks available for private ownership.

Mercury Meteorite – NWA 7325

There are rocks from the Moon, rocks from Mars — and now, just maybe, a rock from Mercury. But now, for the first time… you can own your very own piece! Some scientists say that this is a piece of Mercury and is consistent with observations of the small planet’s surface, but other scientists argue that the meteorite is too old to be from Mercury.

The age of the meteorite is 5.46 BILLION YEARS OLD! That would have been almost immediately after our solar system sprang from the swirling disk of gas and dust around our newborn sun (can you imagine?!).

The tight time frame means that the then proto-Mercury would have had only 8 million years to form, melt inside and separate into core and crust before another impact knocked off a chunk of its outer layer. That said, that’s not an impossible scenario.

So overall, this is inconclusive. BUT one thing is for certain… even if this isn’t from Mercury, it isn’t from any other planet in our solar system… so where did it come from?!
