  Sikhote-Alin iron meteorite {short description of image}
The largest known iron meteorite fall in modern history occurred on February 12, 1947. A 70 ton iron mass burst apart in the atmosphere over the Sikhote-Alin region of Siberia, showering the area with thousands of iron fragments.

There are two types of Sikhote-Alin meteorites – shrapnel and regmaglypted. The shrapnel specimens attest to the violence incurred during atmospheric passage as the iron bolide burst apart along crystal boundaries. The regmaglypted specimens display a rounded, smooth, and often thumb printed surface (regmaglypts) from the atmospheric friction and ablated melting.

Classified as a IIAB coarsest octahedrite, specimens of Sikhote-Alin are highly sought after for collections, research, and display.

  Canyon Diablo Iron meteorite
Crashing into what is now Arizona somewhere around 50,000 years ago was the Canyon Diablo iron meteorite.

Fragments of the meteorite have been actively collected since the mid-1800s and there is evidence that fragments were collected and used by pre-historic Native Americans.

There are more than a dozen identifiable minerals within the Canyon Diablo iron meteorite. Significant for use in geologic dating using Pb-Pb isochrons, is the iron sulfide mineral troilite (FeS).
The troilite in Canyon Diablo contains the lowest lead ratios between several isotopes of lead (Pb 204, 206, and 207) ever measured and has become the reference standard for lead dating methods. Canyon Diablo is classified as a IAB iron.
