Bob writes:
This was found just before sunset on February 3, 2016, at the site known as "Indian Butte" - a witnessed fall. I was on my way to the Tucson Gem Show with Rob Matson who initially did the doppler radar return calculations on this site. It was found half embedded in the soil in the shade of a larger rock.
