Odessa, Texas Meteorite Crater, Crater Sand Micromount

$5.00

Description

Odessa iron meteorites were first found in the 1922 and have continued to be found in a large area near Odessa Texas. Geologists later determined that a large and very shallow depression was a meteorite impact crater that was previously overlooked because it was very old and mostly filled in with sand and rocky debris. In addition to iron meteorites, the Odessa crater has very fine impact-pulverized "rock flour" that has a distinct light-pinkish white color. Although Odessa meteorites are not uncommon, samples of this rock flour are rarely seen on the collector market. It has a very fine consistency like powdered sugar or baking flour.

Refer to the photo. The black centimeter cube is shown for scale and is not included. You are purchasing a small capsule of Odessa rock flour that comes in a labeled gemjar for safe storage.
