Clifford meteorite (L6)

Clifford was found in 1962 by a local arrowhead hunter near Clifford, Lincoln County, Colorado. It was a single stone of 11.35 kg and is an L6 olivine-hypersthene chondrite. The finder didn't think it was anything important, so he put it in his rock garden. Then 35 years later, Gary Curtiss, a meteorite hunter, realized what it was and got it classified.
