Find: 200
TKW: 13.88 kg
Partslice: 137.6 g

Found by Luc Labenne while searching fragments of the Imilac pallasite near La Mina Escondida in 2000. The 13.8 kg mass before cutting had average dimensions of 27 x 19 x 10 cm with a surface texture of small, circular shallow depressions, which is the characteristic weathering pattern of Atacama iron meteorites. This slice shows a bright etch with well defined Brezina lammellae.
