Lake Murray, Oklahoma Fossil Iron Meteorite, Micromount

$5.00

The Lake Murray iron meteorite was recovered as a large eroded mass in a remote area of Oklahoma in 1933. Subsequent analysis confirmed that it was an iron meteorite of IIAB type. Later research demonstrated this meteorite is one of the oldest meteorites ever recovered. It is over 100 million years old and underneath the outer oxidation rind, fresh metal was found. The specimens being offered here are tiny shale fragments taken from the oxidation rind.
