CHEROKEE SPRINGS, South Carolina - Witnessed Fall

Two stones fell approximately 6.5 miles on 1 July 1933 near Cherokee Springs, Spartenburg County, South Carolina. Classified as an LL6 chondrite, less than 200 grams of this material resides outside the Smithsonian Museum in Washington D. C. The thin section came from NEMS and the partial slices were cut from a larger fragment which came from David New. Nearly impossible to obtain, these well cut specimens will become outstanding additions to most any meteorite collection.

CHITENAY, France - Witnessed Fall  

 

The Meteoritical Bulletin indicates that many people observed a fireball over France on 21 February 1978 and the next morning about 4 kg of fragments were collected from a lawn in 1'Ardoise, about 2 km southwest of Chitenay, Blois, Loir-et-Cher, France. Chitenay is classified as an L6 chondrite and only very small amounts of this meteorite have been offered for sale in the meteorite market. The main mass is in the collection of Alain Carion. The choice partial slice offered here is not parallel cut and the small fragment broke off the larger piece while in the plastic container. This is a nearly impossible location to obtain and  a wonderful addition to any collection. Chitenay, 0.022 gms.jpg (30444 bytes)
