This meteorite fall can't get any better when Cold Bokkeveld is the first CM meteorite fall and the first meteorite fall to come from South Africa. What a gem to have in any meteorite collection. The fragment I am showcasing on Meteorite Picture of the Day is a 1.26g fragments and looks fresh as the day it fell :)

And as already mentioned on August 21, 2013: it looks more like Murchison than C.B.

1889 for Mighei...and it is the namesake for the CM group (NOT Murchison as some might think)

Isn't Mighei the first CM fall?
