Genuine Campo Del Cielo Meteorite + Acrylic Display Stand
This large meteorite has a subtle metallic sheen with its well known, natural textured surface area. Scientists believe that the Campo del Cielo mass probably originated within the Asteroid Belt located between Mars and Jupiter, and probably formed around the same time as the earth: some 4.5 billion years ago. The craters' age is estimated as 4,000–5,000 years. The craters, containing iron masses, were reported in 1576. The total weight of the pieces so far recovered exceeds 100 tonnes, making the meteorite the heaviest one ever recovered on Earth. Campo del Cielo refers to a group of iron meteorites or to the area where they were found situated on the border between the provinces of Chaco and Santiago del Estero, 1,000 kilometers (620 mi) northwest of Buenos Aires, Argentina.
