Canyon Diablo Complete Specimen
Meteor Crater, Coconino County, Arizona
Viewed by many collectors as the quintessential American meteorite, Canyon Diablo (meaning Devils Canyon) is the famous meteorite that produced the gigantic crater (3,400 feet in diameter) located about forty miles east of Flagstaff, Arizona. Judging by the size of the crater left by this massive meteorite - about three quarters of a mile wide and 600 feet deep, with a rim rising 200 feet above the plain - the weight of Canyon Diablo has been estimated at a magnificent 63,000 tons. The present offering is a complete, aesthetically appealing specimen.
