A Meteorite Is Heading Your Way!

Don't panic. A meteorite is speeding toward you, but it will only hit your mailbox. These small hunks of genuine meteorites are approx 4,200 years old, and have been harvested from Chandon, Argentina. (We never miss the meteorite harvest in Chandon.) You have two choices. The large-ish ones weigh between 20-33 grams and measure approx 1-1/4" x 3/4" x 1/2", which is very dense. (Get a pair and make cuff-links for your favorite meteorologist!) The smaller ones weigh approx 3-4 grams per box, and you may get multiple pieces. In either case, carry one in your pocket and you'll never be hit by a large meteorite. (And if you are, we'll give you double your money back.)
