This is a superb tumbled individual Tsarev meteorite weighing 38.5 grams. Its dimensions are 45x27x25 mm. Twenty-eight specimens of this L5 classified meteorite were found in fields.  The largest mass weighs 284 kg, the smallest 761 gr with a total weight of 1.23 Tons. The greatest distance between the find sites was 6.0 km.

In 1968, amidst a global surge in conflicts, a remarkable discovery was made in a small village in Volgograd Oblast. This region, known as the primary site of the Battle of Stalingrad—one of the largest and bloodiest battles in history—yielded an extraordinary find in the quiet fields near the rural village of Tsarev.

The Tsarev meteorite, named after the Russian word for czar, is a stone meteorite responsible for one of the largest meteorite showers in Russian history. This meteorite shower occurred on December 6, 1922, but the stones were not discovered until 1968 and only recognized in 1979. The Tsarev meteorite's mineral composition matches that of ordinary chondrites, including olivine, orthopyroxene, clinopyroxene, maskelynite, calcium phosphates, nickel-iron, troilite, chromite, ilmenite, and rutile.

Academic analysis of the Tsarev meteorite reveals significant features: large grains of nickel-iron, light grey areas with well-preserved chondritic texture, and dark areas containing a matrix with olivine grains and remnants of chondrules. 

This specimen would be a beautiful addition to any new or existing collection.  Will come with a Canagem specimen card.
