Campo del Cielo is an iron meteorite fell on Earth around 4000 years ago in Argentina. The huge meteorite, after a journey of 4.5 billion years, hit the Earth's atmosphere at 14,000 km/h, which caused its explosion and fragmentation in a myriad of pieces. This resulted in fragments ranging from the colossal El Chaco (37 tons) to tiny fragments of a few grams, which are scattered over an area of 1350 square kilometres.
Here we have a major piece of almost 1.3 kg, which will bring prestige to a nice collection of meteorites.
