Dundrum Meteorite: Ireland, *1865

Dundrum, Ireland, *1865

Dundrum is a remarkably rare and difficult specimen to acquire. The total known weight of this stone, which fell in Munster in 1865, is only 2,270g. About 1,700g is in the Museum in Dublin, with another 400g in the NHM, London.

It is estimated that there are only about 100 – 200g available to collectors.

This 2.9g cut fragment is a little beauty!

Details of the circumstances of the fall and recovery will appear here when I get a chance.
