    Canyon Diablo Meteorite
    Iron, IAB-MG
    Meteor Crater, Coconino County
    Arizona, USA
    Found: 1891

    The undisputed quintessential American meteorite, Canyon Diablo associated with the Barringer Meteor Crater in Arizona, is a spectacular coarse octahedrite Iron. This highly collectible example is a true classic with incredible 'thumbprint' regmaglypts, including some relatively enormous scoops, and even one tiny hole through the extended wall of one such crater. A brownish color covers the varied, and complicated, surface of this naturally sculptural example. Weighing 4 kilograms (9 pounds), this specimen is as sizable as it is visually stunning. This is one highly aesthetic and superb sample of the collectible American Iron.
    Overall Measurements: 8.27 x 4.72 x 3.15 inches (21.00 x 12.00 x 8.00 cm), weighs 4.02 kilograms (8.86 pounds)

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

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