Sikhote Alin Meteorites from Russia

SikhoteAlinMeteorite.jpg (113541 bytes)

This group of meteorites fell Feb. 12, 1947 at 31,000 mph and was one of the most spectacular falls in recorded history - the fireball it created was brighter than the sun.  At an altitude of 3.5 miles, it broke up, creating a spectacular strewn field a half a mile long. The fragments were created so violently, they're called "meteorite shrapnel".  

One crater pit was 85 across x 20 deep, the total meteorite weight was just under 1000 tons.  

The largest meteorite fragment is 1745 kilograms and is on display in Moscow.

Location: Sikhote-Alin Mountains, Maritime Province, Russia, about 270 miles northeast of Vladivostok. Latitude 46 degrees 9.6 minutes North, Longitude 134 degrees 39.2 minutes West.

Structural class:  Coarsest octahedrite, Ogg, Widmanstatten bandwidth 9 5 mm

Chemical class:  Group IIB, 5.9% Ni, 0.42% Co, 0.46% P, about 0.28% S, 52 ppm Ga, 161 ppm Ge, 0.03 ppm Ir.

Authentication card, and map with more information is included with each purchase.

Campo del Cielo Meteorite

Campo-iron-meteorite.jpg (42971 bytes)

Meteorite strewn site  (name means "On the Field of Heaven", a fitting name by the Indians, named for the meteorite fall) was first discovered by the Spanish in 1576 in the Gran Chaco Gualamba region of Argentina, about 500 miles N-NE of Buenos Aires.  

The area is an open brush-covered plain with little water and no other rocks.  

The largest crater is 78x65 meters (meteorite measures 38 tons) ..a total of 12 craters in the area were  caused by the meteorites, which were intact in each of the craters.  The fall is dated as between 3950 and 5800 years ago, consistent with oral Indian legends.  

These meteorites are a polycrystalline coarse octahedrite of austenite crystals that broke up upon entering the atmosphere.  

Composition is: 6.68% Nickel, 0.43% Cobalt, 0.25% Phosphorus, 87 ppm Gallium, 407 ppm Germanium, 3.6 ppm Iridium (some of which are extremely rare on Earth), the majority element is iron.
