Location: Major County
Type: Olivine Hypersthene Chondrite L5
A single oriented individual was plowed up by a farmer in 1963
but was not recognized until 1998. He, believing it was a meteorite,
kept it for 35 years before scientific studies proved him correct.
This is an excellent example of a fresh, shocked L chondrite. Fine
dark shock veins are visible (but Barely) in the shock-darkened
matrix on some cut and polished surfaces. The total known weight
recovered was about 21.8 kilograms.
