Ringo with his own meteorite

I was searching for some old images and I have found this nice photo of our Ringo with his own meteorite.

Ringo got this meteorite as a gift in July 2017. The meteorite is a piece of a big meteorite that was found in the location called Campo del Cielo in Argentina

The Campo del Cielo refers to a group of iron meteorites or to the area where they were found. This area is situated on the border between the provinces of Chaco and Santiago del Estero, 1,000 kilometers (620 mi) northwest of Buenos Aires, Argentina. The crater field covers an area of 3 by 18.5 kilometres (1.9 by 11.5 mi) and contains at least 26 craters, the largest being 115 by 91 metres (377 by 299 ft). [1]
