Classification: Iron meteorite (IID)
History: In 2010, a gold prospector with a metal detector located an iron mass buried about 60 cm below the surface, 4.5 km north of Nothing, Arizona. The finder sold most of the mass (3.3 kg) in 2012 at a natural history auction, where it was purchased by K.D. Jenkerson.
Physical characteristics: Flattened, rusty mass covered in caliche. Interior relatively fresh.
This meteorite is very rare and only a few dealers have it for sell.
This gorgeous meteorite would make a fine addition to any collection. This material is very solid, takes an excellent polish and displays nicely.
I spend a great deal of time preparing these meteorites for your collection.
I want you to be happy, and you will be very happy with this meteorite... Please see my Feedback.
