Description: Black meteorite (looks almost like opal) in two grey limestone plates (160 x 80 x 60 and 160 x 90 x 50 mm). The larger meteorite part on one plate has three very sharp corners, like a triangle, but the "hypotenuse" is curved. The other smaller part on a separate plate represents a cut through the margin of the meteorite. The shape of this meteorite part is entirely different from the larger part: two areas, one round, one triangular connected by a thin bridge.
