Specimen weight: 35.78 grams
specimen has provenance of the Ron Oriti Meteorie Collection. He
was a famous meteorite collector and his collection was
auctioned off in April, 2008. I bought the Calico Rock and
divided it up.
This rare iron was found
in Izard County, Arkansas, in 1938 and Mr. Oriti helped to
identify it as a meteorite as well as purchasing the entire mass. A
single piece weighing only 7,275 grams was found.
meteorite is an iron, Hexahedrite (IIAB).
meteorite is virtually absent from private collections.
