Big Rock Donga (South Australia) H6 (stone) Found 1970

Just a single stone of this H6 meteorite was found - by an old trapper who used the stone to plug up a rabbit burrow to keep the rabbits from escaping! It remained on a sheep farm for many years before finally being recognised as meteoric in 1989. The matrix is grey/green and mottled, with dark coloured chondrules, lots and lots of fine grained metal flake and dark fusion crust on some specimens. This is a very appealing, difficult to obtain meteorite which is not markedly weathered.
