jnmczurich writes:
Weight of specimens: 62.0g (left on picture 2), 58.3g (right on picture2).

The close-up pictures are 6x8 mm. First detail picture shows a rare troilite-rich vein (top); the blueish mineral is not clearly identified now (bottom). Second detail picture shows the Bjurböle crust. Bjurböle is a very friable chondrite. Therefore, most of all Bjurböle specimen around have no crust.

Information M. H. Hey, Cataloue of Meteorites (1966):
One stone fell through the sea-ice and broke into fragments, the largest of which weighed 80 kg, the total known weight being about 330 kg.
