    Campo del Cielo Meteorite
    Iron, IAB-MG
    Chaco, Argentina
    Found: 1576

    This massive example of the Campo del Cielo Meteorite is rather substantial at nearly 13 kilograms (28.5 lbs.). With an exceptionally large regmaglypt on the primary face, the chunky specimen has the characteristic brown coloration of the classic and popular Iron octahedrite with a rusty patina, adding contrast to the exterior of the huge space rock. The dense and solid piece is aesthetically pleasing from all angles and is an ideal size to be both highly collectible but also decoratively impactful. This is quite a significant specimen with lots of qualities. This is literally one of those pieces that becomes more appealing the longer it is viewed.
    Overall Measurements: 8.27 x 7.87 x 4.53 inches (21.00 x 20.00 x 11.50 cm), weighs 12.92 kilograms (28.5 pounds)

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