There are four basic types of meteorites. Choose the one you want to look at:

Iron Meteorites are what most people think of when they think of meteorites. No doubt they make the best display item and are the best deal. 5.7 percent of the meteorites observed to fall are irons. See them here.

Chondrites, or common stony meteorites are the kind that are most often observed to fall--85.7 percent. Because they are hard to find, they are more rare. See them here.

Achondrites are extremely rare -- 7.1 percent of falls. These come from the crusts of distant planets including the moon and Mars. See them here.

Stony Iron Meteorites are both rare (1.5 % of falls) and beautiful. See them here.
