Desirable Campo del Cielo iron meteorite with outstanding sculptural surface features; the surface is entirely covered by regmaglypts: small oval indentations that are unique to meteorites and caused by ablation in our atmosphere during flight. The complete specimen weighs 1,599 grams and measures approximately 150 mm x 95 mm x 65 mm. The Campo del Cielo meteorite is believed to have fallen to Earth 5,600 years ago and was first discovered in 1576. An exceptionally fine display piece. Accompanied by a certificate of authenticity signed by Geoff Notkin of Aerolite Meteorites Inc. and the TV show Meteorite Men. Noted expert and "Meteorite Man" Geoff Notkin educates us on his adventures worldwide as a meteorite hunter in this podcast.
