    Henbury Meteorite End Cut
    Iron, IIIAB
    Northern Territory, Australia - (24° 34'S, 133° 10'E)
    Found: 1931

    The "best of both worlds" in terms of a display specimen, this Henbury Meteorite end cut offers the dual charms of a cut, polished, and etched surface in contrast to a rugged, natural, and colorful exterior. With an unbelievable Widmanstätten pattern, this piece highlights the incredible, metallic composition of this Iron from Australia. The 'cross-hatched' silver and gray toned face is amazing. The natural reverse side is full of undulating texture, with a shallow cratering. An orange patina adds color and drama to this highly collectible specimen. The associated, small, impact crater field with fragments is one of the world's best.
    Overall Measurements: 4.33 x 3.82 x 1.31 inches (11.01 x 9.70 x 3.33 cm), weighs 945 grams
