DescriptionLAS PALMAS METEORITE - COMPLETE MELON-SIZED IRON METEORITE.
Las Palmas, Paraguay
Found near the strewn field of the famous Campo del Cielo ("Valley of the Sky") meteorite shower in Argentina. Las Palmas meteorites were initially thought to be part of the Campo del Cielo event, but researchers have determined otherwise: this was a completely separate meteorite shower, and meteorites originating from the Las Palmas area possess a different - and typically superior - surface character than their Campo counterparts. With a dusky platinum patina, bright chrome highlights and a textured surface, further accented with fine dimpling, this is a superior example of an iron meteorite. 177 x 119 x 128 mm (7 x 4.75 x 5 inches) and 5189 grams (11.4 pounds).
