"Only one piece of the strange visitor has, so far as we have heard at time of writing, been found. It is a 12.5-pound chunk which struck the ground within a couple of feet of the verandah on the residence of John Shields, about three miles from Shelburne and Horning’s Mills, spattering earth up against the side of the house and imbedding itself to the depth of 18 inches.  The stone was dug out of the ground on Monday morning and brought to town, and it has since been on exhibition in the window of Jelly and White's hardware store, where it has been viewed by a whole shoal of people." - Shelburne Economist, 18 August 1904

Shelbourne is an L5 veined chondrite from Canada. Rarely are Canadian meteorites other than Bruderheim or Abee offered to the public, especially when outside Canada. The restrictive laws governing the ownership and transfer of Canadian meteorites in Canada make this a special chance to own a sample of Shelbourne. Don't miss your chance to add this rarely offered and historical location to your collection. Specimen is accompanied by a collection label from the Martin Horejsi Meteorite Collection

All specimens are authentic with all provenance information provided.

Certificate of Authenticity, Specimen Information Cards and/or Appraisals are provided when applicable.
