The thirteen craters in the Henbury crater-field were formed about 5000 years ago. Some of the meteorites are unaltered individuals and others exploded upon impact. The aboriginal name for the place is "sun-walk-fire-devil-rock"; which sounds like someone stepped on a surface meteorite heated in hot Australian sun. Henbury etched pattern is a favorite; it has crisp sparkling Widmanstatten pattern.
