Numerous fragments and several whole stones, totaling 19.62 kg, were found by an American prospector, Greg Bruce, and his hunting partners in Sonora, Mexico. The first piece (and the largest), a complete individual weighing 2396 g, was found on the surface in a sandy area on the eastern side of a large dry wash, a few kilometers northwest of the town of El Boludo. A search with metal detectors of the surrounding area produced numerous additional fragments and a few smaller whole stones. 

The meteorite comes in a small plastic casing with foam to protect each fragment. As well as a Specimen Identification Card for you to display at home. This is perfect as a gift!

Each of our El Boludo fragments is similar to the one shown in the image, however no two fragments are identical.
