    Odessa Meteorite End Cut
    Iron, IAB-MG
    Odessa, Ector County, Texas, USA

    Another larger offering at 4.5 kilograms (9.9 lbs), this massive end cut of the Odessa meteorite is, simply, spectacular. This end cut provides the "best of both worlds" with a cut and etched window with a visible Widmanst├Ątten pattern including several Troilite inclusions adding to the complexity of the primary face. From the iconic meteor crater in Texas, the Odessa, this stunner from the Lone Star State is worthy of an extended viewing as the intense pattern is rather dynamic. A classic example of material from the famed meteorite shower in Texas, this piece is seriously substantial with size and complexity being its hallmark.
    Overall Measurements: 5.51 x 4.31 x 2.92 inches (14.00 x 10.94 x 7.42 cm), weighs 4.56 kilograms (10.04 pounds)

    Provenance: Central Coast Collection
