KABO, Nigeria - Witnessed Fall

On the evening of 27 April 1971 four stones were witnessed to fall near the village of Kabo, Gwarzo district, Kano State, Nigeria. Kabo is an H4 chondrite, xenolithic, and shows a nicely mixed gray and light brownish matrix with good metal flecking. Only a little more than a kilo of material is available outside Nigeria. The beautifully cut and polished part slice offered here is about 90% crusted with only the small tip missing. The specimen weighs 20.3 grams and is priced quite reasonably at $195.00. Kabo, 20.36 gms.jpg (382232 bytes)

KARATU, Tanzania - Witnessed Fall SOLD

KATOL, India - Witnessed Fall  

On the afternoon of 22 May 2012 a brilliant fireball, with detonations, was witnessed by numerous residents near Katol, Nagpur district, India. Numerous stones were recovered and most were covered with a rich black fusion crust. The matrix is a light gray material with numerous tiny green crystals which do not appear to be olivine. Katol may be an anomalous meteorite or an achondrite. Please note that these pieces are the high-metal content material and were brought out prior to the rains. Most samples I have seen were obviously subjected to moisture indicating this meteorite is an easy rusting one. There are at least 3 meteorite repositories doing research on this fall. The slices below were cut by Matt Morgan on his wire saw using alcohol so they have not been exposed to moisture. All have fusion crust.

KENNA, New Mexico

A single stone was found North and East of Kenna in Roosevelt County, New Mexico, about 1972. Kenna is a rare classification of meteorite, a Urellite. Kenna, and other Urellites, are Olivine-pigeonite achondrites with carbon in the form of graphite and contain microscopic diamonds. Some meteorite scientists theorize that Kenna may have originated from a source in the orbit of Mercury, or possibly Mercury itself. Whatever the source, Kenna is a beautiful meteorite with a bluish cast to the matrix. This material was originally purchased from Bob Haag. Seldom available in the meteorite market, here is an opportunity to acquire an excellent specimen from a classic location.
