Specimen Name: Gold Basin
Specimen Type: Chondrite
Location of Find: Arizona
Date of Find: 1995
An Arizona gold prospector, Jim Kriegh, discovered ancient stone meteorites in an area of arroyos in Mohave County, Arizona. His friend and fellow metal detectorist, Twink Monrad, joined him in the hunt and they spent years carefully documenting their finds. Gold Basin has been described as “one of best mapped strewnfields in history.”
The meteorite comes in a small plastic casing with foam to protect each fragment. As well as a Specimen Identification Card for you to display at home. This is perfect as a gift!
Each of our Gold Basin fragments is similar to the one shown in the image, however no two fragments are identical.
