Campo del Cielo Meteorite di ferro. Nessun prezzo di riserva! - 38×35×30 mm - 86.32 g

Campo del Cielo meteorite fell 4800 years ago in the current Argentina. Its fireball was so bright that stories about it passed from one generation to another. When Spaniards arrived at the place, they were told by the locals that the sky had fallen. They had been using that piece of the sky to make their weapons too. Now the export of this meteorite has been banned by the Argentinian Government so this meteorite is a safe investment and will become rarer to find on the market. It is an iron meteorite and hence it probably comes from the core of asteroids that were destroyed by impacts with other bodies. It is an alloy of iron-nickel mainly although it contains other trace elements. In this auction a 86.32 grams piece of Campo del Cielo is offered in shape of crystal. It comes from breaking bigger pieces in smaller ones with a process that separates the meteorite in fragments that follow the inner crystallization of the meteorite (Widmanstatten pattern but in 3D). This piece shows how the meteorite crystalized in space. It is a unique occasion to complete your collection! Certificate of authenticity is included. About the seller: I'm a geologist formed at the University of Granada (Spain) passionate about astrogeology and space.
