GUJBA, Nigeria - Witnessed Fall

After a brilliant fireball was witnessed and an explosion was heard by numerous people, a conical meteorite fell in a corn field near the village of Bogga Dingare, Yobe, Nigeria, on 3 April 1984.  The local villagers hammered the meteorite into many pieces and most of the material was dispersed and lost.. The description and classification at UCLA specify this meteorite to be a Bencubbin-like meteorite with large metal nodules and pyroxene crystals. It is the only witnessed fall of a Bencubbin type meteorite. This beautiful and unique meteorite contains fabulous pyroxene crystals. Not only rare and unusual but one of the "gotta-have" meteorites for display and visual enjoyment. My personal opinion is this is the most interesting and beautiful meteorite known.
