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

    One of the more popular and widely known Iron meteorites, Camp del Cielo stands as a major force in the world of collecting. While many examples exhibit considerable rusting or lack any particular visual appeal, this superlative specimen has everything to offer. Obviously, it is massive weighing about 16.5 kilograms (36.5 pounds), has an incredible sculptural beauty, with stunning 'thumbprint' regmaglypts over the entirety of its highly textural surface, and is simply gorgeous, with almost indescribable slick reddish-golden-brown coloration giving it a phenomenal overall appearance. This huge meteorite is a museum quality "Campo" - large enough to be dramatic, yet still manageable enough for a collection.
    Overall Measurements: 9.06 x 5.51 x 5.31 inches (23.00 x 14.00 x 13.50 cm), weighs 16.55 kilograms (36.5 pounds)

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

    Estimate: $10,000 - $15,000.
