Product Description

The Cape York meteorite is among the top most historic meteorites in the world. The original mass is one of the largest, following the Hoba meteorite, in Africa. The name for the meteorite is derived from the location where the largest mass was found - 23 miles east of Cape York, Meteorite Island, Greenland.

The explorer Robert Peary, of the US Navy, is credited with finding the Cape York meteorites, in 1894. There has been some conjecture that the recently discovered Hiawatha crater is thought to have been created by the Cape York meteorite impact.
