Iron IAB-sLL, Found in Mexico, 1776

First discovered in 1776 in Mexico, Toluca, as known as Xiqipilco, is one of the oldest-known meteorites on Earth. Found in the hills west of Mexico City, there are numerous documented instances of Toluca being used in colonial times (and possibly earlier) as natural source material for making weapons and tools. The Toluca strewn field was also the site of meteorite pioneer H.H. Nininger’s first great expedition, making it an historic and collectible iron on two counts.
