How to Assemble and Care for your Meteorite Capsule

The Meteorite Capsule by Explore Scientific is the Perfect Gift!

It is important to store your Meteorites in a safe location where they will not be accidentally damaged or knocked over. These specimens can be fragile and can easily chip or break. It is recommended to store them in the Meteorite Capsule to protect them from moisture, dust, and other elements. If you live in a humid area, it is advisable that you use a silica desiccant pack to keep the Capsule and its contents dry, change as needed. 

When transporting your meteorites, be sure to handle them with care and pack them securely to prevent any damage. Wrap them in soft tissue paper or bubble wrap and store them in a sturdy container. It is also a good idea to label the container with the type of meteorite and its location to prevent confusion or loss.

Finally, it is important to educate yourself about the specific characteristics of your meteorites to ensure proper care and maintenance. Some specimens may have unique properties that require special attention. Researching the specific type of meteorite you have and consulting with experts or other collectors can be helpful in maintaining your collection.
