Christie's is proud to present its fourth online only auction of important and aesthetic meteorites.

Led by prized examples of naturally sculpted metallic meteorites, the sale features some of the oldest objects in the world - at 4.5 billion years old, they are a third as old as time itself. The sculptural appearance of these iron and stone meteorites has been formed by the cosmic forces involved in their flight to Earth and subsequent histories.

This curated selection includes incredibly rare meteorites that originate from the surface of the Moon and the planet Mars, which are offered alongside a series of stunning slices and spheres of the most beautiful meteorites known to exist.
