For those living in the Western United States, Canyon Diablo is one of the most famous meteorites of all. It fell in Arizona about 30,000 years ago leaving a crater 4,000 feet across and 600 feet deep. Upon impact, the meteorite is believed to have vaporized and fragments were thrust as far away as 11 miles. Although the composition is 90% iron and 10% nickel, traces of platinum and black diamonds have been found in these specimens.
