Moon-Rocks-Auction

Did you know you can’t legally own moon rocks NASA has collected? Those are considered a National Treasure and ownership defaults to the United States. That’s what makes this Sotheby’s auction so rare. This November one lucky bidder will have the chance to stake claim to three small moon rocks, legally. You see, these pebbles were acquired by Luna 16, a Soviet probe, and presented as a gift to Nina Ivanovna Koroleva, the widow of Sergei Pavolvich Korolev, the man who was the space director the Russian space program. Since that gifting turned the rocks into personal property, they can remain that way and cross the auction block, which is precisely what’s happening. If you drop the $1,000,000+ the moon rocks are expected to fetch, you’ll receive them in a metal case that includes a magnifying glass so you can gaze at something no one else on Earth owns.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
