This is a stunning Dronino classified meteorite slice weighing 49.3 grams. Its dimensions are 42x21x10 mm.  This interesting meteorite is a Nickel-Iron Meteorite, an Ataxite with an ungrouped element structure.

A 40 kg iron was found by Oleg Gus’kov, Moscow resident, as he was returning home from collecting mushrooms near the village of Dronino in the Ryazan district. In early 2003, it was taken to Vernad to The Meteoritical Society΄s Meteorite Nomenclature Committee which defined this meteorite as ungrouped ataxite. In the summer of 2003, the Meteoritic Expedition of Ural State Technical University – UPI and meteorite hunters collected more than 600 fragments (the largest is 250 kg) totaling about 3 000 kg and occurring at a depth of 0.2-2 m across an area of 0.5x1.5 km.

The distribution of the fragments suggests that the meteorite formed a now-buried crater about 30 m in diameter. This crater is not reflected in the present-day topography of the site. No historical records exist of a meteorite fall; thus, it appears likely that the meteorite fell earlier than the 12th century when the area was largely unpopulated.

These pieces are becoming more difficult to acquire so this is a good time to get a fine specimen. Would be a beautiful addition to any new or existing collection. Comes with a Canagem Collection specimen card.

All specimens are authentic with all provenance information provided.

Certificate of Authenticity, Specimen Information Cards and/or Appraisals are provided when applicable.
