About the meteoriteA large iron was found by a local farmer in a valley in a mountainous area of Aletai County. It was surrounded by rocks and half buried. A small specimen was taken for analysis. Heavy machinery was used to move the meteorite from the valley to the discoverer’s home. Physical characteristics: The kamacite bandwidth is 0.89±0.41 mm. Petrography: The major phases of the meteorite are kamacite, taenite, and plessite. Minor phases include schreibersite, daubréelite, troilite, and haxonite.An account of the discovery of this large iron mass in a remote mountainous region was published by Beatty (2011) based on a trip there by Ayisha in June 2011. It has an irregular surface with partial regmaglypts but has been severely affected by terrestrial weathering. The iron is dark-brown; it was partly covered by a granite slab on the side of a mountain. Its exterior was marked by several scrawls of graffiti and cuts. Aletai City officials worried that the meteorite would be further damaged they built a road and moved the Akebulake mass to the Aletai city hall in 2011.
