Recently registered in the Meteorite database. Found during a walking search by Timur Kryachko and Evgeni Zakharchuk. The find was made on the last day of the expedition. Apparently, this is the first part of the meteor shower. The weight of the meteorite is 5500 grams. Apparently, the terrestrial age of this meteorite is very large. The more surprising is that an appreciable part of the fusion crust remains black!
