After detonations, a shower of stones, weighing from about 1.8kg to a few grams each, fell over an area of about 3 x 9 miles; some fell upon ice a few inches thick without breaking it, M.H.Hey, Cat. Met., 1966, p.199. Powdery, carbonaceous matter was found in association with the stones, A.E.Nordenskiöld, Svenska Vetensk.-Akad. Handl. Stockholm, 1870, 8, (9), Ann. Phys., 1870, 141, p.205. Analysis, G.Lindström, Övers. Vetensk.-Akad. Förh. Stockholm, 1869, (8), p.715. The analysis shows no K and is doubtful, W.Wahl, GCA, 1950, 1, p.28. The fall occurred 20 km from Uppsala, A.L.Graham et al., Cat. Met., 1985, p.166. Olivine Fa19, B.Mason, GCA, 1963, 27, p.1011. Ni and Ir contents, O.Müller et al., GCA, 1971, 35, p.1121.
