Vaca Muerta

Vaca Muerta, Taltal Dist., Chile
Found 1861
Mesosiderite-A1, 112g
Mesosiderites are thought to have formed when a silicate rich asteroid collided at high speed with a metal rich asteroid smashing together and mixing their content to form this unusual meteorite. Vaca Muerta is one of only six approved meteorites classified as Mesosiderite-A1.
This end piece shows the beautiful mixture of metal and stone.
