Ordinary Chondrite (H5)
Fell, 1 January 1869; 20 kg

After detonations, a shower of stones fell over a 5 x 15 km wide region (largest fragment ~ 1.8 kg). A few pieces fell upon ice without breaking the ice and were accompanied by powdery dark carbonaceous dust. The primary constituents are, as expected, olivine and orthopyroxene in chondrules and matrix accompanied by accessory troilite, plagioclase, and Fe-Ni metal. Much of the earlier reports were in Scandinavian journals, but details of silicates and opaques occasionally appear in English (Cf., esp. Ramdohr, 1973).

Hessle is one of 170 recorded H5 falls, one of the most common petrologic types for the 364 H (high bulk iron) ordinary chondrite falls representing approximately 30% of all witnessed meteorite falls. For approximately 150 years major portions of the Hessle masses have been held in Stockholm and Uppsala.
