Specimen weight: 36.04 grams
from Field Museum of Chicago Collection #ME 2474
Stone, Enstatite Chondrite (EH)
This beautiful meteorite fell in
Alberta, Canada, on June 9, 1953 at 11:05 pm. After a large
fireball, a single stone weighing 107 kilograms was recovered
from a large impact hole. Abee is in my opinion, one of the most
beautiful meteorites that ever fell, amazing blue color and in
larger pieces, the brecciation is stunning. The only other fall
that equals the beauty of Abee is Portales Valley. It is very
high in sulfur and smells like firecrackers. Abee has been under
intense study since it fell, and much science has been gained
from this meteorite.
The provenance of this stone is
impeccable, with documentation in the Field Museum, one of the
largest meteorite collections in the world.
