Meteorite

This iron meteorite is one of several masses found near the Seymchan River in Northern Siberia. The first mass was found in June, 1967 by a geologist in the course of field work. More recent expeditions have resulted in tons of additional material, including the specimen seen here. This is one of the largest meteorites on display in North America.
