A monthly collection of some of the most interesting pieces of the universe.
mat·ter • /ˈmadər/ • noun • That which occupies space and possesses rest mass.
Everything around you is matter; some matter is just more interesting. For example, fossils, ferrofluid, and fluorite are all forms of matter with wildly different, fascinating properties. But they are all made of the same elementary particles that make up everything else—just in a special configuration. MATTER is designed to explore this relationship and the infinite possibilities our universe has to offer.
Every month, we'll ship you a box with an assortment of materials, objects, specimens, or artifacts that have been carefully selected as some of the most interesting pieces of accessible matter in our universe. Part museum, part lab project, these items will feed your curiosity or help spark someone else's by learning about matter, collecting matter, and appreciating matter. After all, you are matter.
Due to the rare nature of some items (fossils, artifacts, etc.), sourcing large quantities can be difficult. For this reason we've capped the number of boxes we feel we can reasonably fulfill each month without compromising quality. If the subscribe screen says out of stock, please try again next month as that is when most subscriptions expire.
