Is this a Campo del Cielo meteorite??

Recommended Posts

Where or who did you buy it from? 

I've seen some pretty convoluted specimens of Campo so would say it's most likely Campo but it depends on the provenance to be 100 percent sure.

I bought it from this vendor https://www.etsy.com/it/listing/838863109/meteorites-naturelles-certifiees?ref=shop_home_recs_7&crt=1

The first lotto has been sold in a few days...

The vendor has send me a certificate signed by himself and he assured me that these meteorites are well certified. But i'm not an expert so i thought to asking someone :)

I don't speak French but I think you can reasonably be assured the meteorite you purchased is authentic. The photos on Etsy look exactly like Campos. Good reviews as well.

I think this is one of those "Campo crystals", where a larger Campo is frozen with liquid nitrogen, and then shattered and cleaned.

I've never heard of that. Tumbled as well I would guess.
