Description

The Henbury iron was discovered in 1931 and is associated with fifteen impact craters in central Australia. Henbury irons display one of the most attractive desert patinas of any meteorite — a reddish-crimson colour slowly acquired over hundreds of years. The crater field is now a protected area and collecting is prohibited. Famously mapped by Gene Shoemaker (Apollo sample return scientist and co-discoverer of the famed comet Shoemaker-Levy 9) this is a favourite amongst fans of the hit TV show Meteorite Men, as the team filmed extensively in this region.
