This is a superb looking fragment of the Columbus classified meteorite weighing 4.57 grams. Its dimensions are 18x15x10 mm. This rare H5 classified meteorite was found in Luna County, New Mexico USA in 1997. The total weight of the stones recovered is recorded as a minuscule 165 grams. 

Here's what the finder, Michael Cottingham told us: "This is the Meteorite that started it all for me! My wife and I were out looking for meteorites on a dry lake bed in Southern New Mexico and I found one! This was a new meteorite discovery and it only took me 300 hours of searching to find my First One!  The COLUMBUS Meteorite was found by me in January of 1997. It was Classified by A. Rubin at UCLA as a H5 Chondrite. It was found near Columbus, Luna County, New Mexico and the Total Known Weight is ONLY 184 grams. Very Rare indeed."
