The Campo del Cielo crater field, where these meteorites are found, is located in Argentina and Paraguay. The craters age is estimated to be about 4,000–5,000 years old. The meteorites and their craters had been already well known to the native inhabitants of the area. The region is thought to have been first discovered and explored by the outside world in the 1570's.
Meteorites are believed to be small fragments of asteroids, broken off and ejected mainly from the asteroid belt. They are about seven hundred million years older than the oldest rocks on Earth, making them, in our brief lifetimes “eternal.”
Makes a great gift or something to wear for yourself.
