History:
In 2016, two brothers were searching for their camels and came across several large, dense stones south of Sericho, Kenya.
There are no rocks in this area, so they decided they were meteorites.
They spent several weeks collecting them with engine hoists and moving them to their homes in Habaswein.
Though recognized as meteorites in 2016, the masses had been known to camel-herders for decades.

Tip: In order to prevent rust, the project added a rust-proof coating…!!!
