**All of our Meteorites are 100% Genuine Specimens & come with a Certificate of Authenticity**
A Martian meteorite is a rock that formed on the planet Mars and was then ejected from Mars by the impact of an asteroid or comet, and finally landed on the Earth. Of over 61,000 meteorites that have been found on Earth, 132 were identified as Martian as of March 3rd 2014. These meteorites are thought to be from Mars because they have elemental and isotopic compositions that are similar to rocks and atmosphere gases analyzed by spacecraft on Mars. On October 17, 2013, NASA reported, based on analysis of argon in the Martian atmosphere by the Mars Curiosity rover, that certain meteorites found on Earth thought to be from Mars were indeed from Mars.
These are among our best sellers! Genuine fragments of Mars rock [Basaltic Shergottite], presented in an acrylic display box with a descriptive label on the underside.
