The famous "extinction rock" that marks the end of the age of the dinosaurs is called the K-pg boundary extinction event. Many premier locations bear the signature of a significant Earth asteroid impact about 66 million years ago. However, this boundary is unique, as it contains the element iridium and is the "extinction rock" associated with the Chicxulub impact event, which heralded the end of the age of the non-avian dinosaurs.

This is a professionally created K-t or K-pg boundary display. Great for teaching or passing around. This specimen was collected at the K-pg boundary near Newcastle, Wyoming and is extremely rare extra-large specimen.

Display Case Size: 12" L X 8 1/4" W X 2" D.

K-pg size of material 9" L X 3" W X 3/4" D. Total Weight of K-pg material: 420 grams.

Ships with a Certificate of Authenticity and detailed information sheet about the K-t or renamed K-pg boundary. Acrylic stand with gold prong arms and photo cube not included. Tag and tag stand included.

This display would make an excellent addition to teaching about world impacts, mass extinction, asteroid impact, acid rain, the iridium anomaly, and dinosaur extinction rock.

It would also make a benchmark specimen for studying and teaching about sedimentary rocks, acid rain, rare elements, the boundary layer, impact events, the Gulf of Mexico, and impact ejecta. You could also pair this display with our Beloc, Haiti product that also helps to teach about mass extinction, other evidence of the K-pg boundary layer, and strong evidence of many species involved with mass extinctions.

If you want to expand your asteroid or meteorite geology impact collection, this K-pg display is an essential must-have for learning and teaching diverse topics!
