I recently got some nice meteorites in the Herb Gregor (1929-2020) collection, including this excellent large Campo del Cielo specimen, a complete example of this popular and well-known nickel iron meteorite. It has a pleasing heft in the hand, weighs over 1 kilo, and isn’t too rusty either. Annette Slade photo.
