Stannern (Iglau, Jihomoravsky Region, Moravia, Czech Republic) EUC (stone) Fell 22nd May 1808

This eucrite fell in the Czech Republic about 200 years ago, in a time when rocks falling from the skies had only just gained acceptance. Although many stones fell - estimated to be in the hundreds - just 66 were recovered, with a total known weight of only 52kg. Stannern can be a difficult meteorite to acquire as museums won't let it go easily.
