Meteorite display suggestions
      #5525779 - 11/18/12 09:58 AM Attachment (46 downloads)

Well, I'm running out of room in my 4'x15" display case (old aquarium). The micro specimens are running out of room. Any suggestions as to how to better display them, to increase room? The two ends, I don't want to adjust as they are for any larger meteorites I get in the future.

So, for the center section; what would you suggest to increase room? I have around 5 more micros coming! Perhaps attach labels to the containers? Suggestions for how to make nice labels?

As you can see, the cardboard support underneath is bowed, so today I'm replacing it with wood.

Well, I got rid of the labels, instead labeling the containers. All the pertinent info is on the bottom of them anyway.

Now I have lots more room, guess I'll have to start filling it up! The labels laying down are for some of the new ones coming in.

I'm going to slowly start collecting bigger meteorites; what suggestions do all of you have; I can't afford more than about $30-$50 on each.
