Colorado’s Largest Meteorite – The Guffey Meteorite

on January 14, 2007

The largest meteorite found in the state is the Guffey meteorite, named because it’s believed to have been discovered near the small mountain hamlet of Guffey. The 682-pound nickel-iron mass was found in 1907 by two cowboys and sold to the American Museum of Natural History in New York, where it remains on display. However, a small piece was sliced off for display in the Denver Museum of Nature and Science.
