Solid iron/nickel Meteorite!

 

THIS IS AN OUTSTANDING HAND SELECTED SPECIMEN CAMPO DEL CIELO METEORITE, ALL THE WAY FROM OUTER SPACE TO YOU!  IT IS BELIEVED THAT METEORITES ARE THE OLDEST KNOWN MATERIAL FOUND: 4.5 BILLION YEARS OLD.

Dense and heavy, solid iron and nickel. 

 

WEIGHT: 17.0 grams.  Size is 1 1/16" or 27mm. 

ORIGIN:

NORTHERN ARGENTINA /FIRST FIND IN 1576 AD.

INTERESTING DISPLAY FROM MANY DIFFERENT ANGLES.

History: 

The first record of the Campo was in 1576. A Spanish governor learned of the iron from the Indians who reportedly believed that it had fallen from heaven. The governor sent an expedition under the command of one Captain de Miraval who brought back a few pieces of a huge iron mass he called Meson de Fierro (large table of iron). The location of the find was the Campo del Cielo (field of the sky or heaven), a fitting name for the location of a meteorite. Since the Indians believed that the irons fell from heaven the name may have come from the meteorites. The area is an open brush-covered plain that has little water and no other rocks--very good country in which to locate meteorites.
