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
