(scale is in cm)

This 221 gram specimen was recovered in the summer of 1992, eighty years after its fall. Notice the dark almost black fusion crust covered with protruding rust spots. These spots are often found on fusion crusted stone meteorites and are quite distinct. The interior of this stone is a light gray matrix with numerous rust spots where the iron has oxidized over the eighty years that it was on the ground.
