Item Description

This spectacular nickel-iron meteorite, classified as a coarse octahedrite, is from the Canyon Diablo crater in Arizona, about  40  miles  east  of  Flagstaff.  It weighs 13 lbs., a rarer size for this location, and displays a fine example of the 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.
