DescriptionCANYON DIABLO METEORITE - WISHBONE FROM THE DEVIL'S CANYON
Iron coarse octahedrite - IAB-MG
Meteor Crater, Coconino County, Arizona - (35° 3'N, 111° 2'W)
Similar to the previous Canyon Diablo lots. Swathed in a rich, earth tone patina with mango highlights, this pocket-sized, wishbone-shaped meteorite has been honed by its exposure to Earth's elements - specifically the Arizona desert - over the course of tens of thousands of years. This may be an ironic shape having issued forth from the "Canyon of the Devil," but making a wish upon a...wishbone-shaped asteroid fragment...well, you never know. A delightful example of the quintessential American meteorite. 33 x 32 x 14mm (1.33 x 1.25 x 0.5 inches) and 7.75 grams.
Buyer's Premium per Lot:
25% on the first $50,000 (minimum $14), plus 20% of any amount between $50,000 and $1,000,000, plus 12% of any amount over $1,000,000 per lot.
