The Chadong meteorite fell in far western China, in the Hunan Province
on September 17, 1998 at 1900 pm. A single stone fell in a farmyard
where the farmer saw the stone fall and immediately recovered it. It
was a complete chondrite, L6 and the stone weighed 3.7 kilos. I purchased
the entire stone from a Chinese fossil dealer who had bought it from
the finder. I have cut 200 grams from the stone. This is the only piece left from the mass for sale.
