(Lee County, South Carolina, USA) Aubrite (stone)
Fell 25th March 1843
The Bishopville aubrite fell almost 160 years ago, in Lee County, South Carolina. After loud detonations, a stone of only 5.9kg was recovered - a pretty small amount! This light coloured aubrite is also known as an enstatite achondrite, named after its most abundant mineral, enstatite. Large white crystals and fine black veins run throughout Bishopville, all topped-off with a tan coloured fusion crust on fresh specimens.
