Campo del Cielo, Iron Meteorite
Gran Chaco Gualamba, Chaco, Argentina Iron: Octahedrite, coarse (3.0 mm), Type IA Found 1572
The Campo del Cielo is classified in Group 1 and are composed by 6.68% Ni, 0.43% Co, 0.25% P, 87 ppmGa, 407 ppm Ge, 3.6 ppm Ir and almost all of the remaining portion of the meteorite is iron.
The structural class of Campo del Cielo meteorite is composed by Iron (IA) coarse Octahedrite with silicate inclusions; similar to Sikhota-Alin containing important minerals such as kamacite, taenite, plessite and troilite.
This great meteorite was first discovered in 1572 by Spanish explorers in Chaco, Argentina after being reported by Indians that iron was falling from the sky.

Sikhota-Alin Meteorite
On the morning of February 12, 1947 in Eastern Siberia what seemed to be a bright in the sky was clearly visible in full sun light.
The meteorite rapidly crossed the sky from north to south, leaving a boiling dusty trail of meteoroid particles. It then disappeared out of sight behind the Sikhote-Alin Mountains.
That following April after the snow melted. The region was thoroughly examined. Explorers found 24 major craters more than 9 meters across ( the biggest one being 26 meters across and 6 meters deep), and 98 smaller craters and penetration holes from 0.5 to 9 meters across. Then a "scattering ellipse", which contained small pieces that stretched north from the crater field, encircling an area about 4km to 12km.
Chemical Class: Iron IIB: Fe 93.32%, Ni 6.oo%, Co 0.47%, Cu 0.03%, P 0.28%, s<0.01%
Minerals composing the meteorite: kamacite, taenite, schreiberersite, troilite and chromite.
