Description

In 1959, Dr. Harvey Nininger travelled to Australia to investigate the Dalgaranga crater, a site unique in all of meteorite science, as it is the only crater known to have been formed by a rare mesosiderite. The crater is believed to be approximately 270,000 years old, making Dalgaranga one of Earth’s oldest meteorites. Specimens are weathered, but still adhere strongly to a good magnet. Nininger was the first to recognize Dalgaranga as a mesosiderite. It is also one of the smallest craters in Australia. A true collectors “must have” piece
