Benjamin (Knox County, Texas, USA) H4/5 (stone) Found 1969

This newly recognised meteorite appears in the preview issue of the Meteoritical Bulletin #85 as an H4/5 and with the official name of Benjamin. The 51kg mass was found near Benjamin, Texas by Marshal and Emma Parks but remained in their backyard for 29 years until it was finally recognised as a meteorite by meteorite hunter Oza Shaw. Benjamin is an attractive H-group, with dark chondrules and lots of bright metal flake.
