TKW 920 kg. Fall not observed. Found 1822 in the Atacama Desert of Chile.


Matthias writes:
Individual with strikingly clear olivines, regmaglypts, densely crowded fine flowlines and preserved fusion crust.

Found by Dr. Svend Buhl 6 Feb. 2019 in the Imilac strewn field. He heard an unusually clear acoustic signal from his detector, knelt down and uncovered this fabulous piece by hand, digging about only 20 cm deep.

Thanks for sharing the photo and reminding me of this truly rewarding find Mathias. However, the arrow shown in the map gives the location of Imilac crater, the specimen was found some 8 km west-southwest of it.
