An Iron Octahedrite class meteorite first found in 1576 and again in 1988.
These newly found meteorites come from Gran Chaco composed by 6.68% Ni, 0.43% Co, 0.25% P, 87 ppm Ga, 407 ppm Ge, 3.6 ppm Ir. Of course, almost all of the remaining portion of the meteorites is iron. These meteorites are found in a closed forest where there is no standing water, several feet underground; therefore, naturally preserving their excellent quality and capable to compete with Gibeon or Sikhote-Alin in thumbprints and character. Campo del Cielo meteorites are famous for their fully regmaglypted and in some cases, oriented specimens with fresh fusion crust. Museums, collectors, and amateurs appreciate these meteorites for their quality, character and reasonable value.
