Product Description

Shatter Cone  from Beaverhead, Montana
The Beaverhead impact crater is located in Montana and Idaho. This crater is the second largest impact crater in the USA (with Chesapeake Bay Impact Crater being the largest). The Beaverhead impact structure is about 37 miles wide and about 600 million years old. This beautiful red quartzite was self-collected by the company on expedition, on private land, to this area. This impact shatter cone has is arrowhead shaped and has great, pronounced horsetail pattern.

The rise of the Rocky Mountains distorted the crater, but scientists think that it was originally been over 60 miles in diameter!
