The Henbury Nickel-Iron Meteorite fell from the sky in the Central Australian desert almost 5,000 years ago and was discovered in 1931. The meteorites are named after Henbury Station, a nearby cattle station named in 1875 for the family home of its founders at Henbury in Dorset, England. The meteorite/craters were discovered in 1899 by the manager of the station, then went un-investigated until interest was stirred when the Karoonda meteorite fell on South Australia in 1930. At Henbury there are 13 to 14 craters ranging from 7 to 180 meters in diameter and up to 15 meters in depth that were formed when the meteor broke up before impact. The Henbury meteorite is perfect for display or adding to any collection.
The composition and color range of the meteorite is varied. The “irons”, chondrites, and chondrites are designed as the three classes of meteorites. The “irons” are mostly of iron and nickel; the chondrites are made of stone; and the achondrites are very rare stony irons consisting of stone fragments and/or beautiful olivine crystals embedded in a nickel-iron matrix. The material within the achondrites said to be the result of volcanic activity on Mars and/or the Moon, is believed to predate the formation of the Earth.
The meteorite is held sacred and is esteemed in many cultures. It represents the energy of other worlds and allows for access of this energy by the user. The meteorite can be utilized for balancing and aligning the bodies, within themselves, and to synthesize the alignment between the bodies. It enhances communication on this plane and can provide information, stored within, concerning other-worldly aspects relevant to one's needs.
