The Pendleton Canyon Diablo Blanket: Fifty thousand years ago the Canyon Diablo meteorite made its still-awesome-to-behold mark on the Arizona landscape. There were no known witnesses to this cataclysmic event but millennium later pre-historic Native Americans discovered meteor fragments along the canyon rim and found they made excellent tools. Evidence suggests the Anasazi used them for trade centuries before Columbus reached North America. Many Southwest cultures since have considered these special "rocks" gifts from the gods, and the Canyon Diablo Crater is regarded as a sacred spot to some tribes. Myth says the fragments are endowed with magic powers and other worldly energy—probably a reference to their magnetic properties. Today the crater made by the meteorite sits on the Navajo Indian Reservation not far from Flagstaff, a reminder of the power of the universe.
