    Description

    Campo Del Cielo Iron Meteorite
    Iron, coarse octahedrite
    Gran Chaco, Argentina
    5.91 x 5.71 x 1.97 inches (15.00 x 14.50 x 5.00 cm)


    At some 14.5 lbs. (6.6 kg), this Meteorite is impressive on sheer size alone. However, it also happens to be Campo Del Cielo which has been known dating as far back as 1576 and is one of the most collectible and popular of all iron Meteorites. This "Valley of the Sky" piece evidences some rusting, typical for the variety, which can be easily treated. This whopper is very aesthetic piece with a nicely textured surface.

    [Scale: 1 inch, with mark at 1 cm]
