Lot Details
Distinctive Canyon Diablo Meteorite
Iron, coarse octahedrite
Coconino County, Arizona

Estimated at a total weight of approximately 63,000 tons with a diameter of 100 feet, the Canyon Diablo meteorite plowed into the Arizona desert with the force of over 100 atomic bombs roughly 45,000 years ago. The impact dispersed fragments in all directions for miles, while the main mass was vaporized, leaving an enormous crater. This spectacular, highly sculptural specimen exhibits many regmaglypts and an unusual deep scoop.
Measures 6.5 x 7 x 3.5in; weighs 14.3lbs.
