Kuba

Viñales is a very new meteorite. This meteorite fell on 1st February 2019 in the province of Pinar del Rio, Cuba. Unlike the Chelyabinsk event, in this case no people were injured, although a loud sonic boom was heard by the locals and recorded in video (see link below).

Fragments have been mainly found in Viñales, a town where people live from tourism and tobacco production. Due to the extensive rains, plants in the area are very tall, which makes finding the meteorites an almost impossible task.

Viñales has been officially classified now as L6 chondrite with shock veins and some inclusions of melt rock (breccia).

In this lot one piece is offered. It is covered in fresh fusion, as shown in the pictures.

Weight: 90.6 grams.
