Meteorites hold cosmic wisdom and are extremely old, up to 4.6 billion years old. A meteorite is a "space rock"; a solid piece of debris from a comet, asteroid, or meteoroid, that originates in outer space and survives its journey through the atmosphere to reach the surface of a planet or moon. 

      Most Meteorites are fragments of asteroids that broke apart in the asteroid belt, located between Mars and Jupiter. They can orbit the Sun for millions of years before finally colliding with Earth. The study of meteorites has helped us understand the history of our solar system, how planets and asteroids formed and how impacts of large meteorites have altered life on Earth. 

      Meteorites are divided into three categories: iron, stone, and stony-iron. Iron meteorites are primarily composed of iron and nickel, and once formed part of the core of planets or large asteroids. Stony meteorites are silicate rocks and the most abundant type of meteorites (up to 95% of observed Meteorites are stony). 

      Stony-iron meteorites consist of almost equal parts iron-nickel metal and silicate minerals; including precious and semi-precious gemstones. They are extremely rare (less than 2% of all known meteorites) and considered the most beautiful of all meteorites. There are two types of stony-iron meteorites: pallasite and mesosiderite. Pallasites likely form when the olivine-rich mantle of an asteroid mixes with the metallic core. Mesosiderites are mixtures of iron-nickel metal and basalt, likely formed by the collision of two asteroids.

      Campo del Cielo "Field of Heaven" Meteorites are iron meteorites found in a 11.5 by 1.9 mile area in northern Argentina. This area contains at least 26 craters and they are believed to be 4,000-5,000 years old. Over 100 tons (more than 220,000 pounds) of fragments have been found from this impact and is the largest of all meteorite discoveries. The craters were first reported in 1576 but were well known to native inhabitants of the land. The Natives said the mass had fallen from the sky in a place they called Piguem Nonralta, which the Spanish translated as Campo del Cielo ("Field of Heaven").

      Meteorites are powerful stones of transformation and cosmic wisdom. They help us understand our history, purpose and prepare us for the future. Meteorites activate our psychic ability and discover unique ways of sharing them with the world. When you work with a Meteorite, its otherworldly energy will uplift you into higher levels of consciousness and keep you safely grounded.
