Caption: Aggregate hailstone. Large hailstone with smaller stones visible. Ruler shows radius of this remarkable hail stone. Diameter is approximately 6 centimeters, the size of a baseball. Hail is a form of solid precipitation which consists of balls or irregular lumps of ice, that are individually called hail stones. Hail stones on Earth consist mostly of water ice and measure between 5 millimeters (0.20 in) and 200 millimeters (7.9 in) in diameter, with the larger stones coming from severe thunderstorms.
