Stone. Chondrite, Ordinary (H5)
Fell February 15,1997
Just before midnight local time, in Juancheng County, Heze Prefecture, a bright fireball was seen to explode and fragment, showering the area with over 1000 individual stones, the largest one weighing 2.6 kg. One stone is said to have fallen through the roof of a farmhouse, landing in a pot on the stove. The fall occurred near the Yellow River in Shandong Province, leaving an east-west oriented, elliptical strewn field measuring 10.5 km x 4.3 km. Cosmogenic nuclide data indicate that Juancheng was a spherical meteoroid with a diameter of 1-3 m, the largest estimate corresponding to 50,000 kg.
This is a complete Juancheng individual weight 362.9 grams. A great looking stone with 96% very fresh black fusion crust.
