Campo Del Cielo Iron-Nickel Meteorite Argentina Heavily Regmaglypted 565 Grams

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.

It measures 3.5 inches across. Specimen is covered with many regmaglypts, also called thumbprints. There are dimples, grooves, ridges and indentations from its short, high velocity ablative flight through the Earth's atmosphere. These surface features represent softer parts of the meteorite that melted away from the atmospheric friction of oxygen and nitrogen molecules and the intense heat of unevenly distributed compressed air in front of the meteorite ram pressure. This specimen has a very nice sculptural shape.

Classified as a Group IAB (Og) polycrystalline, coarsest octahedrite, Campo is composed of 93% iron, 6.7% nickel and trace amounts of various elements and compounds. The 4,500 year old Campo strewnfield and its 25 craters was rediscovered by Spanish Conquistadors in 1576, after the metal was used by the native population for toolmaking for centuries. All meteorites come with an ID card. All meteorites and meteoritic materials are guaranteed authentic and correctly identified.
