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

    Weighing a massive 21.6 pounds (9.6 kilograms), this impressive Campo del Cielo is a natural work of art, resembling a Rodin sculpture - albeit from Outer Space. The brownish rock features a subtle, contrasting reddish patina over numerous exposed areas of this huge example. Shape and form blend perfectly with this specimen that is as artistic and attractive as any Campo could be. The rugged exterior is replete with many regmaglypts, folds and promontories giving the gigantic meteorite an immense character and flair. This glorious representation stands naturally, with a vertical orientation, showcasing its primary surface.
    Overall Measurements: 8.27 x 6.69 x 3.00 inches (21.00 x 17.00 x 7.62 cm), weighs 9.6 kilograms (21.16 pounds)

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