Olivine-bronzite chondrite, veined and brecciated (H5,br; S3; W0)
Fell, January 30, 1868; ~250 kg recovered.

A shower of stones with more than 100,000 fragments fell over an area of several square kilometers. The meteorite is brecciated with xenolithic clasts of recrystallized silicates. Chondrules are sharply defined within the host but are absent from the xenoliths. Fe-Ni metal and troilite rim the chondrules and are also found elsewhere within the matrix.
