Science at The Field

Science Newsflash

They are the “Mona Lisas” of meteorites – out of over 50,000 known meteorites, only 101 of them are fossilized, and four of them are now on display at The Field Museum. The meteorites, which fell to Earth nearly 500 million years ago, are typically found in one location – a limestone quarry in southern Sweden. Learn more about this discovery in our latest Science Newsflash on display in Stanley Field Hall.
