Gold Basin

For Sale

    This beautiful and old meteorite was found in 1995 in Mohave county, Arizona northeast of Kingman.  This neat meteorite was first found by gold prospectors using metal detectors while searching for gold.   Studies have shown that this is now the oldest known strewnfield in the USA, estimated to be ~25,000 years old.   Several thousand pieces have been found totaling at least 60kg.   The very first meteorite I ever found was a beautiful 129 gram gold Basin individual.  Many pieces of this are cracked and weathered, but I had the chance to pick through several kilograms to find some nice solid pieces.  Gold Basin is classified as an L4
