Campo Del Cielo Iron-Nickel Meteorite Heavily Regmaglypted Sculptural 564 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 3.25 inches across. This 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 upper atmosphere. These surface features represent softer parts of the meteorite that melted away from atmospheric friction and the unevenly distributed intense heat of 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 meteorites fell around 4,500 years ago and were rediscovered by Spanish Conquistadors in 1576 after local tribal people found and used the iron to make tools for centuries. These are some of the best quality iron meteorites available in their price range. All meteorites come with an ID card. All meteorites and meteoritic materials are guaranteed authentic and correctly identified. If you have any questions, please message me and thank you for taking the time to look!
