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

    The Odessa Meteor Crater is the largest of a number of craters outside of the city of the same name in West Texas, popularized by the film "Friday Night Lights" from 2004 and the second recognized impact crater in the United States. Odessa meteorites have a Nickel-Iron content and are a coarse octahedrite. This heavy example is a complete individual and weighs a robust 1.2 kilograms. This specimen is highly aesthetic with a fabulous shape and an excellent texture. The piece has a dark, reddish-brown color in line with the Iron content, which does provide a rusty patina to many of the intricate divots and dents.
    Overall Measurements: 3.81 x 2.93 x 2.71 inches (9.67 x 7.45 x 6.88 cm), weighs 1,258 grams
