Holyoke meteorite (H4)

Holyoke was found in 1933 near the town of Holyoke in Phillips County, Colorado. It's an H4 olivine-bronzite chondrite and weighed 11.2 kg. The Handbook of Colorado Meteorites says that it is "a very unique meteorite because it is one of the few ordinary chondrites to contain type-2 carbonaceous chondrite fragments within an ordinary chondritic matrix."
