Huge Museum Grade Campo del Cielo Meteorite SpecimenThis remarkable specimen stands upright so it's perfect to display on your altar, bedside cabinet or workstation. No display stand necessary!

Jane and Curtis have had this beauty on one of their altars for many years, but the time has come for it to find a new home.

We received information about this meteorite from Rockgems, who mined the stone.

Here is some of what we learned about this treasure from the certificate of authenticity that comes with the meteorite, and which will be conveyed to the person who purchases this specimen.

Huge Museum Grade Campo del Cielo Meteorite SpecimenTo paraphrase, the Campo del Cielo meteorite fell to Earth some 4-6,000 years ago, as determined by Carbon 14 dating of charred wood remains of trees found at multiple crater impact funnels in the area. The original age of the meteorite was found to be 14 million years old.

The Campo del Cielo meteorite field is located in Gran Chaco Gualamba, Argentina, about 500 miles North-Northwest of Buenos Aires.

The first record of a Campo del Cielo meteorite find dates to 1576, when the Spanish Governor of Santiago del Estero heard from Indigenous Indians that there were pockets of extremely valuable, nearly pure, iron in the area, which the Indigenous peoples believed to have fallen from the sky.

A Spanish commander, Captain de Miraval, who was sent to report on these stories, recovered a few pieces of a huge iron mass he called Meson de Fierro, or large table of iron. The find was located in an area called Campo del Cielo, or field of the heavens.

This Campo del Cielo meteorite specimen is a coarse octahedrite, composed of around 92% iron and 6.68% nickel, with smaller amounts of cobalt, Phosphorus, Gallium, Germanium and Iridium. 

The large Campo del Cielo meteorite underwent violent deceleration upon entering Earth's atmosphere, breaking up into large individual pieces that traveled sufficiently long trajectories to create what geologists call full surface regmaglypts, or dimples, clearly visible on all sides of the specimen.

These regmaglypts appear as "thumbprints" all over the surface.

Huge Museum Grade Campo del Cielo Meteorite SpecimenThe regmaglypts are thought to be formed as the meteorite entered Earth's atmosphere by small vortices of hot gases carrying small droplets of molten meteoritic material that erode the surface of the chunk of meteorite pictured here. 

Needless to say, meteorites displaying full surface regmaglypts are extremely rare.

In addition, this meteorite specimen shows no rust, which is also rare for a primarily ferrous specimen, and correlates with the location of the find, which is in a higher elevation closed forest, several feet underground, with no standing water nearby.

Geologists say this Campo del Cielo specimen rivals the famous Gibeon or Sikhote-Alin meteorite specimens in thumbprints and character. 

Huge Museum Grade Campo del Cielo Meteorite SpecimenOur experience in working and meditating and wearing meteorites is truly inspiring and that is why we have decided to make them available to our customers, many of whom also meditate, work in the healing arts or want to participate in creating the new paradigm shift on earth.

We find meteorites to be repositories of Cosmic Energy from deep space and also deeply grounding stone allies, making these meteoritic specimens powerful assistants in accessing the Divine, our Higher Selves and a calm and tranquil energy stream.

The Archangel Michael Connection

This powerful Campo del Cielo meteorite specimen consists overwhelmingly of  iron, giving it a distinctive metaphysical connection with Archangel Michael.

Esoteric Christianity makes a link between iron oxide and Archangel Michael, and a crystal or stone containing hematite, iron, or iron oxide can provide the bearer with a powerful connection to Michael, providing access to the Archangel's loving wisdom and power to dissolve illusion through the activity of his famous sword, the sword of Ultimate Truth and Karmic Liberation.

During the Libran months, during late September and October in the northern hemisphere, meteor showers will be visible. At this time of year, when sensational meteor showers, largely composed of iron, traditionally streak across the night sky, Esoteric Christian philosopher Rudolph Steiner’s clairvoyant vision saw the traditional flashing iron sword of Michael.

The meteoric sword of Michael was thought to cleanse the Earth’s atmosphere of summer's sulfurous influences, allowing the Higher Self to emerge and guide the initiate along the path of Spirit toward the birth of the Inner Christ Light, an event which takes place in December, during the festival of Christmas.
