Writeup from MB 87:

Souslovo

Bashkortostan, Russia

Found 1997 July

Ordinary chondrite (L4)

In late July 1997, Ismagil Gaysin and his son Radik were loading hay on to a cart near Souslovo village, 10 km N of Birsk town. The cart was not safe on the sloping track, and the father asked his son to find a stone to secure the wheel. Radik found a stone buried in soil in the nearest ditch. When the work was finished, they decided to bring the stone home because it had an unusual color and shape. Later, they thought that the stone (weighing 19.3 kg) could be a meteorite, and in 2002 sent a piece to the Vernadsky Institute, Moscow for identification. In 1966 March 30, 15:45 UT, a bright fireball was observed in the region and it could be that the meteorite find might be related to the fireball. Classification and mineralogy (S. Afanasiev, Vernad): olivine, Fa23.5; pyroxene, Fs23.2Wo1.3; shock stage, S2; Weathering grade, W0/1. Specimens: 6147 g, Vernad; main mass with anonymous owner.
