Canyon Diablo or The Devil's Canyon meteorites are several fragments of an asteroid that hit the Earth 50,000 years ago, creating the Meteor Crater, also known as Barringer, near the nowadays called Devil's Canyon, in Arizona, USA.
The impact was caused by a large asteroid of ferric composition, leaving one of the most spectacular and largest craters known, as well as a multitude of metal pieces scattered in the vicinity.
In this lot we are offering a nice-sized piece, perfectly preserved, of good quality and with a spectacular shape to add to your collection. Clean and healthy meteorite, rust-free. There are three graphite nodules which add value to the meteorite. An excellent opportunity to add this wonder of the universe to your collection. Museum quality.
All our meteorites come with an IMCA (International Meteorite Collectors Association) certificate, so we guarantee for life the authenticity of all our meteorites. Buy with guarantees.
Regards and best wishes.
