Hello.

I am a science teacher who is finally looking for someone to give my LARGE iron-nickel Campo del Cielo meteorite a good home. This meteorite has been part of an amazing journey in public outreach. I originally purchased this as a poor educator with a new credit card back in the early 2000's. I bought this piece from an IMCA certified gentlemen on eBay. Sadly, I do not have any of the paperwork that came with it. My hope is that the person looking to add it to their collection can look at the pictures and tell it is not a fake.
As a science teacher, I admit that I was not the best person for taking care of this meteorite. It was part of so many cool labs like: density labs and cratering labs. The kids loved it. This meteorite was even dropped from the top of the Pluto Astrograph dome one summer into a bin of flour and cocoa powder to demonstrate cratering. (This would make a true collector cringe)
Meteorites are in a niche market, and I don't expect to find a buyer soon. This is literally the first place I thought of. I can always send higher resolution pictures upon request.

Weight: 4,161 grams (9.175 lbs)
