So Many Trails, So Many Tears - Zack Hemsey

Meteorites are the energetic fuel for the planets, and with their energy, they change and transform the course of the development of life. Their formation begins with interweaving the sun's rays from thousands of suns. At the points where all these rays of light cross each other and are polarly reflected, a mass begins to form after a specific time, which gradually increases and begins to take a material form, which we call a comet or meteorite. A meteorite has two functions in its formation. The first is that it sends the reflected light back to all the suns, and the second is that it becomes the food of the stars and planets.


Campo del Cielo is the name for a group of 26 large iron meteorites that fell approximately 4,500 years ago in Chaco and Santiago del Estero in present-day Argentina. In 1576, the governor of a province in northern Argentina commissioned the military to search for a huge mass of iron, which he had heard that natives used for their weapons. The natives claimed that the mass had fallen from the sky in a place they called Piguem Nonralta, which the Spanish translated as Campo del Cielo ("Field of heaven (or the sky)"). The expedition found a large mass of metal protruding out of the soil and collected a few samples described as being of unusual purity. The governor documented the expedition and submitted the report to the General Archive of the Indies in Seville, Spain.


One of the expeditions, led by Rubin de Celis in 1783, used explosives to clear the ground around the mass and found that it was likely a single stone. He believed it was formed by a volcanic eruption rather than a meteorite. However, he sent samples to the Royal Society in London and published his report in the Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society. Those samples were later analyzed and found to contain 93% iron and 7% nickel; they were assigned to a meteoritic origin.


Since the discovery of the crater field, thousands of pieces of iron meteorites have been found, weighing from a few milligrams to 30.4 tons. The latter is called Gancedo. After the 60-ton Hobo (found in Namibia) and the 31-ton Cape York, it is the third-largest piece of meteorite on Earth.


At least 26 craters make up the Campo del Cielo crater field, the largest being 115 by 91 meters (377 by 299 ft). At least two of the craters contained thousands of small iron pieces. Such an unusual distribution suggests that a large body entered the Earth's atmosphere and broke into pieces, which fell to the ground. Samples of charred wood were taken from beneath the meteorite fragments and analyzed for carbon-14 composition. The results indicate the fall date to be around 4,200–4,700 years ago. The age is estimated to be 4.5 billion years old, formed as part of the development of our solar system.


The fragments contain an unusually high density of inclusions for an iron meteorite, which may have contributed to the disintegration of the original meteorite. The average composition of the Campo del Cielo meteorites is 3.6 ppm iridium, 87 ppm gallium, 407 ppm germanium, 0.25% phosphorus, 0.43% cobalt, and 6.67% nickel, with the remaining 92.6% being iron.


Campo del Cielo is of extraordinary purity and fantastic morphological forms. It is energetically most effective when worn in the Heart area. Its energy and vibration encourage a person to grow and develop at higher levels. The iron of the Campa del Cielo meteorite is one of the oldest on Earth. Although it originates from space, it grounds us firmly with its steel energy as long as we have it in our vicinity. It is an excellent tool for working on yourself, meditating, solving problems and blockages on an emotional and spiritual level, and healing physical injuries. With its high purity, it works protectively against the intrusion of evil energies. It affects the first and seventh energy centers of consciousness (Earth and space) and is a unique traveler in getting to know yourself and the life around you on a higher level.
