Esquel is a town in the northwest of Chubut Province in Argentine Patagonia. It’s also the place where in 1951 a farmer found a 755 kilograms (1,664 lb) meteorite while digging a hole for a water tank. When cut and polished, the meteorite showed beautiful yellowish olivine (peridot) crystals.

For the short lived (and much missed) electronic label LXXII a series of artwork was created using elements of the meteorite, this was then used across a promo CD.
