Product Description

Native Terrestrial Iron from Disco Island, Greenland.

Actually a mixture of iron with a small amount (5-20%) of nickel...the whole core of Earth is believed to be made of this.

Also common in meteorites, but very rare on the surface of Earth, where virtually 100% of all iron has been altered to the various oxides we use as iron ore.

From the David Shannon Minerals Collection. Acquired from the Bosch Collection, circa 1970.

Comes in a 1 1/4" hinged perky. Specimen is 13mm tall.

Only one left.
