Stony-Iron Meteorite - 27.4 g
Sericho, Kenya

Polished cut scrap. Cast in resin.

Sericho.

Story: In 2016, two brothers looking for their camels came across several large, dense rocks to the west of the village of Habaswein and South of Sericho, in Kenya. There are no rocks in this area, so they decided that these were meteorites. They spent several weeks gathering them with motorised hoists and carrying them to their home in Habaswein. Although they were only recognised as meteorites in 2016, these masses had been known to camel breeders for decades. A village elder said that he and his brothers had played on the stones as children.
