Iron. Medium octahedrite (IA) with silicate inclusions
Benue River, Nigeria
UDEI STATION -WITNESSED FALL-
During daylight hours, a meteorite was seen and heard to fall near the railway station in Udei, Nigeria. A 103 kg silicated-iron was recovered from a shallow hole eight years later. Some reports tell of the existence of a second mass. Udei Station is a medium octahedrite with a high content of chondritic silicates and troilite, characteristic of the IAB group. Theories place an origin for this group within an impact melt pool, or in association with a crystallizing metallic core.
