Ordinary chondrite, unequilibrated (LL3.15; S4; W0)
Fall, 26 April 1895; 1.039 kg

After detonations 4 stones fell with two of them being recovered at Bishunpur (942 g) and Parjabatpur (97 g), 1.8 km apart. The meteorite is composed of sharply delineated chondrules and chondrule fragments (~60 vol%) within a densely packed fine-grained matrix. Undulose extinction and mosaicism in olivine suggest strong preterrestrial shock (level S4). Opaques (Fe-Ni metal, troilite, chromite) and minor silicates (Ca-poor clinopyroxene, diopside) are present. A feldspathic and smectite presence indicate pre-terrestrial aqueous alteration.

Listed as Parjabatpur in the NHM catalogue.
