AN INTRODUCTION TO IRON METEORITES

The most visually intriguing of meteorites are also the heaviest and the most recognizable. They come to us from large asteroids with molten cores that once orbited the sun between Mars and Jupiter. Extremely slow cooling of those cores, over millions of years, allowed nickel-iron alloys to crystallize into fantastic geometric structures knows as Widmanstätten Patterns. Much like snowflakes, the pattern of every iron meteorite is unique. Catastrophic collisions within the Asteroid Belt shattered some asteroids, sending pieces in all directions. Some of them eventually encountered Earth's gravitational pull, resulting in a fiery journey through our atmosphere at speeds up to 100,000 miles per hour. Superheated to thousands of degrees Fahrenheit, the surfaces of these fragments melted to form beautiful sculptural indentations called regmaglypts or thumbprints — features that are unique to meteorites.

AGOUDAL (Originally known as Imilchil)
Iron Meteorite (IIAB)
It's pretty unusual for a new iron meteorite to come along, and collectors are thrilled about this new find from the Sahara in 2012. Known also by the provisional name of Imilchil, this meteorite was classified as a IIAB iron. The vast majority of Agoudal pieces are very small (10 to 20 grams). We acquired these excellent specimens from a close personal friend in North Africa and they are the largest we've seen. A lovely desert iron with attractive shapes and nice natural patina. These are also priced to move!

CAMPO DEL CIELO
Iron Meteorite (IAB)

AN IMPORTANT NOTE REGARDING THE LEGALITY AND AVAILABILITY OF CAMPO DEL CIELO
On January 1, 2008 Argentina implemented a law prohibiting the exportation of meteorites. All of our Campo del Cielo specimens were legally obtained prior to the enactment of that law. We do not trade in illegally exported meteorite specimens. The Campo del Cielo irons we currently have in stock are all we will ever have. Experienced collectors know that prices on this excellent, historic meteorite have risen dramatically during the past year, so if you are thinking of acquiring one for your collection, now is the time.

CAMPO DEL CIELO – Extremely rare irons with natural holes
Iron Meteorite (IAB)
Iron meteorites with natural holes are among the rarest and most interesting of all meteorite specimens. Occasionally, during a meteorite's journey through the atmosphere, it will melt in such a way as to create a natural hole. Probably less than one in a thousand irons display this type of feature. They are extremely rare and highly sought after by collectors.

CAMPO DEL CIELO 10.25 kilograms
IAB  First discovered 1576, Formosa, Argentina
10.25 kilogram individual

Massive 22 1/2-lb scute-shaped Campo with huge surface area for its weight, some large shallow thumbprints and several small, natural holes. Nice, and a bargain price too!

CAMPO DEL CIELO – Large regmaglypted individuals
Iron Meteorite (IAB)
Many years of intensive hunting in the Campo del Cielo strewnfield, combined with exportation restrictions from Argentina means we are no longer able to acquire large Campo irons. These are among the last sizeable examples of this famous meteorite that we have, and we do not expect to be able to acquire any more. If you have been dreaming of acquiring a large, affordable, iron meteorite, now is the time to get one.
 

CAMPO DEL CIELO "The Iron Hand "
IAB First discovered 1576, Formosa, Argentina
Highly sculptural individual

This marvelous piece looks, in some orientations, like a clenched hand with outstretched thumb and it has quite a history, as it was many times used by our company president, Geoff Notkin, for show-and-tell at his lectures and outreach events. One of the best examples of a Campo del Cielo in this size range — ever. Click for large photos >>>

CANYON DIABLO
Iron Meteorite (IAB)
America's most famous meteorite, Canyon Diablo, is found in the area surrounding Arizona's magnificent Meteor Crater — the best preserved meteorite crater on Earth. H.H. Nininger studied it for years and found specimens miles from the point of impact. The crater is an important scientific site and a ban on meteorite hunting is strictly enforced by the owners. Specimens of this historic and important meteorite are very difficult to obtain and ours come from old collections. We've had the privilege of working and filming at Meteor Crater several times with NASA EDGE [pictured], BBC's Globe Trekker and the educational series STEM Journals.

GEBEL KAMIL
Iron Meteorite, Ungrouped (UNGR)
Gebel Kamil is the most exciting iron meteorite discovery in many years and these remarkable fragments, steeped in a natural bronze patina, have instantly become a favorite of the Aerolite Meteorites team. A crater, approximately 45 meters in diameter, was discovered in the Uweinat Desert in Egypt in 2009. These specimens were found near the crater and display a unique surface texture, reminiscent of lizard skin, and are similar in appearance to Sikhote-Alin, but with the added allure of the rich desert patina. A must-have for the collector!

GIBEON
Iron Meteorite (IVA)
The Gibeon iron, from the Namib Desert, has long been a favorite of collectors because of its sculpted appearance, stability, attractive etch pattern, and lovely, rich desert patina. Some years ago, Gibeon meteorites were relatively common in the marketplace, but a ban on hunting and export from Namibia has made these excellent irons almost impossible to obtain. I acquired most of these great specimens from a colleague who had kept some quality specimens in storage. I picked these particular pieces because of their excellent shapes. These Gibeons make outstanding display pieces and are sure to increase in value as the supply continues to diminish.

HENBURY
Iron Meteorite (IIIAB)
The Henbury iron was discovered in 1931 and is associated with fifteen impact craters in central Australia. Henbury irons display one of the most attractive desert patinas of any meteorite — a reddish-crimson color slowly acquired over hundreds of years. The crater field is now a protected area and collecting is prohibited. As a result Henburys have all but disappeared from the marketplace and these are our last specimens of any size. We filmed an episode of our multi award-winning TV series Meteorite Men at Henbury in 2010 [pictured] and Henbury remains one of our all-time favorite meteorites. An absolute must for collectors of iron meteorites. All of our Henbury meteorites have legal export permits from Australia.

MUNDRABILLA
Iron Meteorite (IAB)
A remarkable Australian iron, Mundrabillas are known for their unusual zoomorphic shapes, many of which seem to resemble animals or modern sculptures. Mundrabilla is a medium octahedrite with an attractive etch pattern and is found in a very remote part of Western Australia. All specimens are as-found, with an orange/ochre patina. Most available Mundrabilla specimens are very small. It is very unusual to see good quality sculptural specimens, such as these, of this size. We filmed an episode of our multi award-winning TV series Meteorite Men at Mundrabilla in 2010 [pictured] and found numerous specimens. All of our Mundrabilla meteorites have legal export permits from Australia.

ODESSA Historic specimens from the UNM Collection
Iron Meteorite (IAB)
Odessa is one of the most famous craters in the world. It was where some of the very first metal detecting for meteorites took place during the 1940s and also the site of the fan-favorite "Odessa Crater" episode of Meteorite Men. These outstanding individuals come from the collection of the University of New Mexico. Every piece carries a hand painted collection number and is accompanied by an original UNM Collection card.

SEYMCHAN
Siderites with excellent etch patterns
Though Seymchan was originally classified as an iron (IIE), newer Seymchan finds produced fabulous ballistic material with an abundance of colorful olivine clusters. The majority of Seymchan material is ballistic and most are familiar with slices containing those lovely olivine crystals. However, Seymchan as an iron is an exceptionally attractive meteorite and features a spectacular etch pattern. We are pleased to offer iron siderite part slices.

SEYMCHAN 256.5 grams

SIKHOTE-ALIN (INDIVIDUALS)
Iron Meteorite (IIAB)
As a collector and enthusiast, Sikhote-Alin is easily my favorite meteorite. The Sikhote-Alin shower of 1947 took place in a remote area of eastern Russia and was the largest single meteoritic event documented in modern times. It is an extremely rare witnessed fall iron, and many individuals display the classic characteristics of meteorites: regmaglypts, orientation, rollover lips, and even impact pits from in-flight collisions with other meteorites! Sikhote-Alin is an extremely stable and affordable meteorite. Once relatively available in the marketplace, intensive hunting at the fall site has resulted in the area being completely hunted out, and no new specimens now make it into collectors' hands. What we have now is what we have.

A VERY SPECIAL OFFER — FREE WITH PURCHASE
For a limited period of time, every Sikhote-Alin meteorite purchased from us will be accompanied by a complimentary copy of Eleven Space Sculptures — a strictly limited hand numbered art postcard designed exclusively for us by Stanegate Studios. Eleven Space Sculptures features original photographs of eleven outstanding Sikhote-Alin meteorites, and is inspired by vintage mineral illustrations from the Nineteenth Century.

SIKHOTE-ALIN SUPER PREMIUM INDIVIDUALS
Iron Meteorite (IIAB)
The majority of these specimens have been admired and adored in an old collection for many years and are among the very best we have seen in almost fifteen years of specializing in this fabulous Russian meteorite. These outstanding individuals have truly extraordinary shapes. We do not expect to ever again see specimens of a comparable quality and these are the best of the best. The Sikhote-Alin meteorites presented on this page are pristine examples, not the poor quality, pitted and rust-damaged B and C-grade individuals being offered elsewhere, some of which have been acid-washed, causing them to lose important surface features.

NOTE TO COLLECTORS: Our close personal friends and colleagues in Russia have advised us that no new material will ever be found at the Sikhote-Alin site. We have watched supplies of this alluring meteorite dry up completely during the last few years. Our remaining stock of A-grade specimens is all we will ever have. If you wish to acquire an example of this iconic witnessed fall iron, the time to do so is now. We cannot acquire any new Sikhote-Alin individuals and prices continue to rise on this exceptional material.

SIKHOTE-ALIN (SHRAPNEL)
Iron Meteorite (IIAB)
These exciting specimens are from the same fall, but are known as shrapnel specimens. They broke due to atmospheric pressure and/or mid-air collisions, and possibly also explosive fragmentation upon impact. These pieces really show the power and fury of an iron meteorite fall: ripped and torn edges reminiscent of bomb shrapnel. These pieces are very rare — they have not been cleaned and still have their attractive, natural ochre patina.

TAZA (NWA 859)
Iron Meteorite (ungrouped) Plessitic octahedrite
A colleague of ours in Europe calls this gorgeous meteorite "The Princess of the Irons" and the title is well deserved. Found near the Moroccan town of Taza in 2001, this rare desert iron is an ungrouped (UNGR) plessitic octahedrite and is also known as Northwest Africa 859. Taza irons display a lovely caramel colored patina; many specimens retain some original blue-grey fusion crust, and many also show features of orientation. Although similar in appearance to Sikhote-Alin individuals, the Taza shower was tiny in comparison, with a total known weight of approximately 100 kg. The majority of Taza irons are very small — less than 20 grams. We are particularly pleased to offer excellent complete slices, something that is very rarely seen, due to the small size of most recovered pieces. One of our favorite meteorites!

URUACU
Iron Meteorite (IAB-MG)
Uruacu (pronounced "Oo - roo - ah - sue") is an interesting iron found in 1992 in Goias, Brazil. It has a low total known weight, and most specimens recovered were very large. Only a few modest-sized individuals were found. The entire strewnfield lies on private land and has been hunted exclusively by the owner over a period of many years, so we don't expect to see many more of these irons appear on the market. When cut and etched it displays an attractive coarse pattern, similar to Sikhote-Alin. These individuals are in as-found condition with natural yellowish-ochre patina.

WHITECOURT
Iron Meteorite (IIIAB)
The identification of a new crater in northern Alberta, and its attendant shrapnel fragments in 2007, was one of the most significant meteorite discoveries in recent years. The area surrounding the crater is a national preserve and there is a $50,000 fine for removing meteorite fragments. Two episodes of Meteorite Men were filmed at Whitecourt, and these specimens from outside the preserve were found by one of my friends and hunting partners, and have been granted official export permits from the Canadian Government. An attractive color copy of that permit accompanies each of these specimens. Intensive hunting at Whitecourt by the experienced Canadian team means there are almost no pieces left to be found, and we are delighted to be able to offer a small number of these highly collectible crater-forming meteorites.
