Carbonaceous chondrite (CM2; S1)
Fall, 6 April 1942; 2.536 g

After the meteorite fell quietly into the snow on the farm Pollen in Northern Norway it was picked up. Later analyzed by Wiik (1956) Weight: 253,6 gram, density 2,574. Largest dimensions: 7,9 X 5,3 X 5 cm.

An Al26 cosmic-ray exposure age of only ~1 Ma is somewhat unusual.
