Andrew Jones Auctions, November 9th
Andrew Jones Auctions’ upcoming Meteorite Auction on Saturday, November 9th, features nearly 100 lots of rare and important meteorite specimens in most classifications – Lunar, Martian, Iron, Stony, and Pallasite – with estimates ranging from $100 to $300,000. The sale will be held online and in the Andrew Jones gallery at 2221 South Main Street in downtown Los Angeles, Calif. This sale has something for virtually every cosmic enthusiast, including a wide array of Iron Slices from world localities such as Australia, Greenland, Russia, Namibia, Nigeria and the United States. Included are specimens exhibiting the sought after Widmanstätten patterning, with estimates for individual slices ranging from $200 to $15,000. From the space rocks that fall to Earth to the debris resulting from these collisions, this sale also offers a lovely group of impact glass. These Tektites form when huge meteorite impacts shower molten rock back up into the atmosphere, where they cool and eventually fall back down to Earth as impact glass. From the affordable mellow-yellow Libyan Desert Glass to the always endearing soft green Moldavites, estimates range from $100 to $300. The auction will start promptly at 12 o’clock noon Pacific time. Online bidding is by LiveAuctioneers.com and Invaluable.com. Previews will be held at the gallery Thursday and Friday, November 7th and 8th, from 10-5 (Pacific), as well as the morning of the auction. Phone and absentee bids will also be accepted.
