Fifty thousand years ago the Canyon Diablo meteorite made it's still-awesome-to-behold mark on theArizona 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 madeexcellent tools. Evidence suggests the Anasazi used them for trade centuries before Columbus reachedNorth 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 areendowed 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, areminder of the power of the universe. The Canyon Diablo blanket pattern is woven in our American millsand incorporates diamonds, arrows, mountains and other Native American-inspired graphics.This blanketis robe size, the size preferred by Native Americans for ceremonialpurposes and wrapping about oneselfas a robe. Impressive as a wall hanging and practical when foldedon a sofa or at the foot of a bed.
