Item Description

A SPECTACULAR nickel-iron meteorite, classified as a coarse octahedrite, from the Canyon Diablo crater in Arizona. At 13 lbs., this is a rare size.  A fine specimen displaying deep, well developed ‘fingerprints’ called regmaglypts.  These are produced by ablation (severe frictional heating of the surface, but not interior, of the meteoroids) when they entered the Earth’s atmosphere about 49,000 years ago.   This piece of interstellar history would be a compelling addition to any collection.
