Extremely slow cooling of those cores, over millions of years, allowed nickel-iron alloys to crystallize into fantastic geometric structures knows as Widmanstätten Patterns. Much like snowflakes, the pattern of every iron meteorite is unique. Catastrophic collisions within the Asteroid Belt shattered some asteroids, sending pieces in all directions. Some of them eventually encountered Earth’s gravitational pull, resulting in a fiery journey through our atmosphere at speeds up to 100,000 miles per hour. Super-heated to thousands of degrees Fahrenheit, the surfaces of these fragments melted to form beautiful sculptural indentations called regmaglypts or thumbprints – features that are unique to meteorites. This iron meteorite specimen acquired it’s unique surface characteristics during flight through our own atmosphere. They are known as a shrapnel specimens – fragments which exploded during flight, due to atmospheric pressure or collision with another meteorite. Jar measures 2″ x 1.5″, the iron meteorite is +/- 1 gram. One centimeter scale cube for size reference.
