Description

Iron IAB-MG, Found in United States, 1922

The Odessa meteorite impact crater is located in West Texas and is recognized as a National Natural Landmark by the National Park Service. It’s estimated to be about 63,500 years old. The crater was found by a rancher who rode his horse out looking for a lost calf and stumbled upon the crater. The Odessa crater was verified as a meteorite impact crater because a geologist noticed an odd paperweight in the mayor’s office. The paperweight was a rock that had come out of the center of the crater and was later confirmed to be a meteorite.

We are pleased to present Odessa individuals and slices. The specimens offered are out of a very old collection. The exteriors are well regmaglypted and feature a natural bronze patina. The interior of Odessa displays an absolutely eloquent Widmanstätten pattern and some with eye-catching inclusions.
