Caption: Chondrite meteorite fragment. Person holding an H5 ordinary chondrite fragment found in Covert, Kansas, USA. This historic stone meteorite was recognized in 1929 by pioneering meteorite researcher H.H. Nininger. A search was conducted and a total of ten meteorites were recovered from the area. Some had been used by locals as door stops, weights and fill for a concrete floor. This section shows a wealth of metal flecks (light specks) within the stony matrix.
