An iron, Gibeon meteorite, with the appearance of an abstract sculpture sold for $46,875. A piece of the Seymchan meteorite, which was found in Siberia near the town of Seymchan, fetched $43,750. A large chunk of the sparkling, Canyon Diablo Meteorite, from the Arizona meteorite crater, sold at $27,500.
The timing of the auction was perfect, as it occurred at the 20th anniversary of the Peekskill fireball. The fireball is a meteorite that smashed into a Chevy Malibu car just 50 miles from Manhattan. A piece of that Peekskill fireball, which was the most videotaped descent of a meteorite of all time, went for $16,250.
