Iron IIIAB, Found in Australia, 1931
The Henbury iron was discovered in 1931 and is associated with fifteen impact craters in central Australia. Henbury irons display an attractive desert patina — 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. We filmed an episode of our multi award-winning TV series “Meteorite Men” at Henbury in 2010.
