Colorado Meteorites


English Language: English

Author: Gerald Cestkowski


This data-packed manual includes:

- Meticulously-researched histories of all 89 currently-recognized Colorado meteorites, with more than 2,000 source citations. Virtually all published mentions of every fall and find have been located, including rare magazine and newspaper articles, monographs and press releases. Other sources include original letters, invoices and notes from Harvey Nininger, correspondence between meteorite finders and Nininger, previously unpublished institutional listings and many other archival records.
- Historical distribution data culled from dozens of institutional and private collector catalogs. Fascinating in its own right, this is information you can use to trace the provenance of specimens you may own or are considering purchasing.
- Current per-gram prices for most collectable examples.
- A special chapter on discredited Colorado meteorites.
- Hundredds of photographs and illustrations, plus maps and lists by weight, date and type.
- A centimeter grid at the back of the book to aid in visualizing the sizes of original masses.
