On February 12, 1947, this huge iron meteorite exploded just north of Vladivostok, Siberia, resulting into a shower of thousands of fragments large and small, individuals and shrapnel, and hundreds of impact holes, all over the Sikhote-Alin Mountains. Many have been found since then, but part of that area has now been turned into a Wildlife Refuge for Siberian tigers.
Classified as a Coarsest Octahedrite.

And just for Christmas, I just added an assortment of small Sikhote-Alin pieces (see picture), perfect for stocking stuffers. Please ask if you need more pictures. They are all $4 a gram.
