|Classified as a stone, chondrite (H5)
veined/brecciated. Fell on January 30, 1868 at 7:00 PM near Warsaw, Poland. Thousands of
people witnessed a large fireball followed by detonations and then a shower of stones fell
over a large area near Pultusk. Tens of thousands of small stones rained down on the land
and houses. The next morning people began to recover them from the snow. It is estimated
that over 100,000 stones fell with only a few thousand recovered. The vast majority were
small from a few tenths of a gram to 10 grams and are known as "Pultusk Peas".
The largest intact specimen weighed almost 10 kilos and is in the British Museum
