Silverton (Texas) (Briscoe County, Texas, USA) H4 (stone) Found 1938

Four stones with a total weight of only 2556g were all that were ever found of this meteorite, which is somewhat low for an ordinary chondrite. Slices reveal lots of bright metal flake, nice chondrules and some shock veining in the matrix. This can be quite a difficult meteorite to obtain due to its relatively low total known weight.
