Ureilite. Fell August 2, 1971. 1544 g.

After a number of tremendous sounds likened to both thunder and sonic booms, the Haverö meteorite landed on the island of Havero, 25 km southwest of Turko (Abo), South-West Finland. A single 1.544 kg stone was recovered. The stone had fallen through a storehouse roof and was soon reported by a nine-year old. The Haverö meteorite is a ureilite. While several hundred ureilites are known (mostly from both hot and cold dessert), Haverö is one of only six witnessed falls. Ureilites are characterized by an odd and enigmatic mix of silicates (olivine & pyroxenes) and various forms of elemental carbon (graphite, diamond, etc.). Meteoritic iron (Kamacite) and sulfides are also invariably present. In December 1972, 11 separate articles of Meteoritics were dedicated to the stone (Volume 7, Issue #4).
