DescriptionCampo del Cielo Meteorite
Superlatives are most appropriate for this Campo del Cielo meteorite. This highly aesthetic specimen has numerous "thumbprint" regmaglypts over the entirety of its contoured and bold steely surfaces. A large example at 3.6 kilograms, this piece is simply gorgeous. Stored in oil for many years, this individual looks to be quite stable and shows no signs of rusting common with this variety of meteorites. Meteorites of this ideal size in terms of collectibility and display potential have virtually disappeared from the collector market. This is an example that would be hard to duplicate. This is a truly superb Campo del Cielo, and one of the best of its size likely to be seen. The mass sits on its own with a perfect orientation to show off its attributes.
