    Toluca Meteorite End Cut
    Iron, IAB-sLL
    Mexico City, Mexico
    Found: 1776

    This end cut is not terribly thick but is definitely more than just a slice of the Toluca Meteorite. The main face of this end cut, weighing 571 grams, shows a bold Widmanst├Ątten pattern thanks to expert etching. The hefty end cut features a nice natural exterior that looks like what the rind of an Iron Meteorite really should. Discovered in 1776 by conquistadores in Mexico, this is a quite intriguing and interesting variety.
    Overall Measurements: 4.45 x 3.33 x 0.74 inches (11.31 x 8.45 x 1.89 cm), weighs 571 grams

    Provenance: The Property from an East Coast Collection
    Phillips, New York, June 8, 1996 (lot 212)

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