Lock Map
Name in Russian:Попигайский импактный кратер, Красноярский край, Россия
Locality type:Crater
Age:35.7 ± 0.2 Ma
Geologic Time:Eocene
Other/historical names associated with this locality:Popigayskii


35 Ma age (Eocene).

Huge impact crater about 90 km in diameter. Impactor is thought to have been betweeen 5 km and 8 km in diameter. It is possible this impact triggered the Eocene-Oligocene extinction event.

Layered and irregular/massive diamond grains have been reported to contain "lonsdaleite", amorphous carbon, graphite and fullerene-like/onion-like carbon. The first impact diamonds containing the latter are described from here. There is a possibility that the fullerene-like carbon is a relic.
