10.18g Canyon Diablo Coconino
Collected from rim of Barringer Meteor Crater Impact Site
Forty-nine thousand years ago, a large 30 to 50 meter diameter iron asteroid impacted the Colorado Plateau in northern Arizona. The resulting massive explosion excavated 175 million tons of rock, forming a crater nearly a mile wide and 570 feet deep.
The damage inflicted by the impact was similar to a nuclear bomb blast, but without ionizing radiation damage. The asteroid, bedrock, and any fauna or flora at ground zero would have been vaporized.
Meteorite from the crater are officially called the Canyon Diablo Meteorite, after the adjacent Cañon Diablo.
These Coconino Sandstone samples were collected at the rim of the crater.
All of my impactites are guarantied authentic and each specimen will always include an individual certificate of authenticity/provenance card.
