Canyon Diablo Necklace


Out of stock

This meteorite is made up of Coarse Octahedrite. Coarse Ochaedrite is a common form of iron in meteorites. It is made when the iron cools without other compounds joining its structure.

The Canyon Diablo Metorite gets its name from the canyon of Diablo which lies just a short 5 km from the site of the meteor crash. The closest town to the site is also called the town of Canyon Diablo because of its proximity to the canyon.

This meteorite was found my Mr. A Morriston while he was out hunting in Arizona in 1891. However, it is assumed that these meteorites actually fell to earth around 49000 years ago!
