Meteorite collectors have different tastes and they tend to collect meteorites based on several factors - rarity, type, locality, or personal reasons like the date or exact place of the find. One of the most difficult and time-consuming collections to build is a "Type Collection", which is collecting meteorites by their petrologic type or class.

For example, there are over a hundred different types of meteorites, including chondrites, achondrites, carbonaceous, iron, pallasite, planetary, Vestan, and many more. Many of these classes also have sub-types and transitional types, so building a collection of every possible type can often take years.

I have put together this exclusive Type Collection Kit which contains 36 different classes, types, and sub-types (including many rare ones that are hard to find).

This is a great way to start out or to fill holes in your existing collection. Listed below are all of the types included in this kit - actual locality for each specimen will vary according to my inventory of types, which fluctuates over time as I sell out of certain meteorites and replace them with new localities. This kit also includes witnessed falls, hammer falls, and historical falls - an added bonus to any type collection.
