Selma, Rare 1906 Alabama H4 Meteorite, Micromount


In 1906 a large rectangular mass was found buried in a hay field in Dallas county Alabama by the finder Mr. John W. Coleman of Selma Alabama. At the time, it was the largest stony meteorite ever recovered in the USA - a record that was shattered when the Norton County aubrite fell years later. Although the meteorite was rumored to be connected to a widely witnessed fireball seen over in the area in 1898, no evidence was ever found to connect the fireball and recovered meteorite. Lab analysis revealed the stone to be a H4 chondrite with a highly-variable metal content.
