Description


Fabulous Campo del Cielo iron meteorite (Argentina) with an unusual pyramidal shape and outstanding sculptural surface features; the surface is entirely covered by regmaglypts: small thumbprint-like oval indentations that are unique to meteorites and caused by ablation in our atmosphere during flight. The complete individual specimen weighs 1,289 grams and measures approximately 92 mm x 105 mm x 67 mm. In fine condition. Accompanied by a certificate of authenticity signed by Geoff Notkin of Aerolite Meteorites Inc. and the TV show Meteorite Men. 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 piece, reminiscent perhaps of a rocket ship on a launch pad when displayed in its 'arrowhead' orientation.
