Cali #007

Barrio Mariano Ramos

EXACT WEIGHT of this stone is 24.901 grams.

This stone was found on Sunday, July 14th, eight days after the fall, by a member of the School of Astronomy of Cali. He was out hunting alone for the second time and found this meteorite on the edge of the street in a gutter. It is complete, with only fusion crust chips missing. It appears to have been run over by cars, and is slightly oxidized where the fusion crust is missing. I purchased this stone from the finder.
