Some facts about Vaca Muerta:
This meteorite was found in 1861 in the driest desert of the world: The Atacama, Chile.
It is classified as a stony-iron, mesosiderite.
Eucrites are believed to have come from the asteroid Vesta. Mesosiderites are formed on the surface of a parent body as a result of impacts with another body.
Vaca Muerta is a differentiated silicate and metal rich meteorite containing many silicate and eucrite inclusions. For this meteorite to show such a varied and disrupted character, the Vaca Muerta parent body must have been impacted countless times by different types of material to break up, mix, and fuse the various constituent pieces.
Vaca Muerta has a very weathered exterior, but still has lots of metal inside.
This meteorite is part of a private collection that was given to me by my father, Claudio Canut de Bon, who has written articles in magazines and books about the subject of Meteorites and many other foreign and earthly rocks.
Vaca Muerta means "Dead Cow" in spanish.
