Campo del Cielo – Complete Individual with Hole
Iron, coarse octahedrite
Gran Chaco, Argentina
Campo del Cielo
meteorites are woven into the fabric of Argentina and the world. Argentines attempted to forge weapons from meteorites in the war against Spain. In 1816, the Republic of Argentina presented two revolvers allegedly made of meteoritic iron to US President, James Monroe. Distinguished by an aethestically interesting single round hole, the beautiful irregular shape of this desirable specimen bears testimony to its violent descent through Earth’s atmosphere. Weighs 3609 grams
