This is the third recovery from the 1st March fireball over Norway. Provisionally named Oslo, this 115g individual is said to have fallen through a tree onto grass. It was then scrubbed clean by the finder with water and vinegar - thankfully, with no lasting damage.

Purchased from the finder by Rob Elliott.

This is a beautyful piece. But observe it carefully, because remaining vinegar could maybe increase corrosion.

Thant's pure beauty! It looks like the vinegar did a fine job.

Gorgeous stone. I wonder if it still smells like vinegar? Regardless, it's beautiful. :)

Great Fusion Crust. The water and Vinegar cleaning is a method not often used!!!
