Specimen weight: 1085.1 grams
specimen is a large complete slice. Quinjingue is an older
pallasite, and the crystals are almost all opaque. A few show
some translucency but most do not, and it is not stable enough
to cut thin.
Quinjingue meteorite was found in Bahia, Brazil in 1984 by a
farmer digging holes to plant trees. It was more than 1 meter
underground. A single mass was found, weighing 59 kilograms. No
further pieces have been located, despite intensive searches.
