Birth of the Solar System - Allende Meteorite

Birth of the Solar System - Allende Meteorite

The Allende meteorite landed on our planet in 1969, but its origin goes all the way back to the birth of the Sun. Encased in resin with a glimmering shine, this specimen is a piece of the building blocks of our solar system.

4.6 billion years ago, the solar system was a cloud of gas, dust, and heat. Over time, this material accumulated into asteroids, planets, and our star. Geologic processes melted and reformed much of the original material of our solar system, but some small pieces from that time remained in chondritic meteorites like Allende.

This item contains authentic meteorite dust from the Allende meteorite. The specimen contains an artistic glitter pattern to represent the formation of our solar system from dust and gas.
