Haxtun meteorite (H/L4)

Haxtun was found in August 1975 in a wheat field in Phillips County, Colorado. It's a weathered H/L4 ordinary chondrite and the original main mass weighed 15.5 kg. The Handbook of Colorado Meteorites says that an additional 30 kg has been found since then, although this number is probably higher than that.
