Provenance:

 

This incredibly aesthetic meteorite has a distinguished history.  This specimen came from the C J Lunenschloss collection then to the H H Nininger Collection and finally to the 49er Minerals Collection.  What a trip it has taken.  We were lucky enough to meet Dr.  Nininger in person many years ago and because we shared his interest in meteorites he was a most interesting and gracious host. We entreat you to experience this traveler and mold your thumbs and fingers into the natural regmaglypts but the sharp edges are to be avoided when handling this celestial remnant. The Canyon Diablo meteorite refers to the many fragments of the asteroid that created Meteor Crater, Arizona.  Meteorites have been found around the crater rim and are named for nearby Canyon Diablo which lies about three to four miles west of the crater. Certificate of authenticity included.

 

Metaphysical:

 

Meteorites are believed to offer strength and hope in the face of a long struggle or physical ailment.
