DOKACHI, Bangladesh - Witnessed Fall  

 

After the appearance of a fireball and detonations, a shower of stones fell on 22 October 1903 in several villages in Munshigan, Dacca, Bangladesh. Twenty four stones were recovered with a TKW of 3.84 kg, most of which is retained in Calcutta, India. Classified as an H5 chondrite, veined, Dokachi is very difficult to acquire. The specimen offered here weighs 0.716 grams and is priced at SOLD, considerably less than the previous owner paid for it. Dokachi, 0.716 gms.jpg (31488 bytes)

EAGLE, Nebraska - Witnessed Fall

 


19.4 grams, $1420.00
A single stone fell on 1 October in Cass County, Nebraska, and was recovered the following spring. Eagle is classified as an Enstatite chondrite (EL6), low-iron subgroup, brecciated. The specimens offered here came from the Bob Haag collection. The 19.4 grams slice has the original Huss number (H478.13) on one edge.

ESQUEL, Chubut, Argentina  

The Esquel meteorite was found before 1951 in the Futaleufu department, Chubut, Argentina. Classified as a stony-iron, Pallasite, main group, angular olivine shape, Esquel has become known as the "Queen of the Pallasites" due to the translucency of the olivine crystals and the ability to be used for jewelry. The partial slices offered here are beautifully prepared with a mirror polish and will grace any collection or piece of jewelry.
