9 grams.   Diogenite

TKW 3.28 kg. Observed fall 16 Sept 2016, Shaanxi, China.


Mike writes:
History: On 16 September 2016, at about 15:00 local time, many residents from several villages heard an airplane-like noise followed by three loud sonic booms. A woman in Mazichuan witnessed dusty smoke rising from a hillside 100 m away from her home. She went to the hillside and picked up a black stone in a hole. She then knocked off a corner of the stone and found greenish crystals inside. The stone was abandoned outside her yard and later picked up by her neighbor.
