Iron meteorite with weight about 30 kg found in 2017. It belongs to unclassified type (not octahedrite, not hexahedrite, not ataxite). Oval ~1 mm size grains of low-Ni kamacite are cemented by more high-Ni kamacite, with very minor taenite.
Exact point of fall is unknown. For the moment the single about 1 cm polished section is under investigation.
