Hello and greetings from Joshua Tree Imports. Our brick and mortar store is located in beautiful, sunny downtown Lakeville, Indiana. Be sure to check back with us and see what kind of new stuff we have listed. This slice features an impact altered Widmanstatten crystal pattern found only in a tiny percentage of Campo specimens. There are some black silicate inclusions along the edge of the slice.There are several shiny, gold-colored schreibersite inclusions visible on both sides. Shreibersite is an impact created sulfide mineral that resembles iron pyrite. The 5 and 1/16 inch long slice has been polished and nitric-acid etched on both sides. The slice shows off the altered crystal pattern of the lighter and darker colored taenite and kamacite iron-nickel alloys. Classified as a Group IAB Og polycrystalline coarse octahedrite, Campos were rediscovered by Spanish Conquistadors in 1576.
