TKW 41 kg. Observed fall 20 November 2008, Wilton Rural Municipality, Saskatchewan, Canada.

I found this stone in late April of 2009 in the Buzzard Coulee strewn field. I immediately noticed its brilliant iridescence and that it was an oriented stone. The underside has a complete flow over lip and this gorgeous coloration. The upper surface has radial flow lines that extend over the sides of the meteorite and the stone is 100% fusion crusted. This is definitely a keeper!!!

Flow lines, iridescence, rollover lip -- what more could one ask for? Definitely a one-of-a-kind find!! Congratulations.
