Amazing Chilean bencubbinite, with an unusual set of types of chondulas, vanadium sulfides and geochemistry unusual for bencubbinites. Currently, this meteorite is being studied in the best laboratories in the world.

Found by Timur Kryachko, as a result of a targeted search for meteorites carried out on foot. In the photographs - sawn registration mass of this meteorite, located at the Vernadsky Institute.
