Henbury Meteorite | 4.75 Gr | Individual | Iron IIIAB | Awesome Rare | Australia | SO24

This is a stunning Henbury  classified meteorite weighing 4.75 grams. Its dimensions are   21x9x13 mm.  This Iron (IIIAB) Medium Octahedrite classified meteorite was found in the Northern Territory of Australia in 1931. So far approximately 2T of this material have been recovered. This piece displays extremely well.  This Australian find is very well shaped and preserved. These pieces are becoming more difficult to acquire so this is a good time to get a fine specimen.

Henbury fell 8 miles southwest of the town of Henbury, Australia almost 10,000 years ago. RA Alderman investigated the site in May 1931 based upon Aborigine stories. He found 13 craters, the largest of which was 720 x 360 feet. Few meteorites were found in the largest three craters indicating an explosive impact. Some of the Henbury meteorites are shrapnel shaped indicating this explosive ending and some have smooth edges indicating abrasion by an atmospheric passage.

Would be a beautiful addition to any new or existing collection.  Will come with a Canagem and a Meteorpassion specimen cards and ships in a protective display specimen box.
