Elba meteorite (H5)

Elba was plowed up in a field in the summer of 1966 near Elba, Washington County, Colorado. It was an oriented H5 olivine-bronzite chondrite but only half of it was found. That half was 4.175 kg and did not exhibit a fusion crust, so we know that it didn't break in the upper atmosphere.
