This is my full collection of Canyon Diablo material. The average weight of my finds is under 20g. I found one with natural weathered hole, that i have turned into a necklace. One of my favorite ones is the iron with host rock (limestone) attached. The impact material was collected on forest service land around 8 miles from the crater. The dark green material is partly melted host rock and silica. The translucent light green piece is a rare moldivate from the crater. Finally my largest find which weighed in at 230 grams. Hope you enjoy. :) ht

Nice finds!!!! Thanks for posting.

I wasn't expecting to see the moldavite. 

How far away from the crater do you have to be before you can legally metal detect for meteorites? As I understand it, all the land immediately surrounding the crater is a patchwork of private and state land.

Winona exit as you head east out of Flagstaff is where i was hunting when i found the glassy material. Check your maps, but it's basically 8-10 miles from the crater.
