Collection: Campo del Cielo

The Campo del Cielo meteorite refers to a group of iron meteorites that were discovered in Argentina, near the town of Campo del Cielo, which translates to "Field of the Sky" in English.

The Campo del Cielo meteorites are composed primarily of iron and nickel, typical of iron meteorites.

The Campo del Cielo meteorite fall is estimated to have occurred around 4,000–5,000 years ago. The region was first officially documented by Spanish explorers in 1576. However, the local inhabitants likely knew about the meteorites long before that.
