A stone of about 40kg is said to have fallen in a field of Frau Sorbinov, K.E.A.von Hoff, Ann. Phys., 1830, 18, p.185, M.H.Hey, Cat. Met., 1966, p.373. Analysis, 21.33% total Fe, M.I.Dyakonova and V.Y.Kharitonova, Meteoritika, 1960, 18, p.48 (M.A.16-447). Whether any specimens in collections really came from such a stone is by no means certain, they are all very similar to Bachmut. However it has been shown from radiation ages that Bachmut and Pavlograd specimens belong to different falls, but some confusion exists, R.Ganapathy and E.Anders, Oherka sovremennoï geokimii i analitiheskoí kimii. nauka, Moskva, 1972, p.72, A.L.Graham et al., Cat.
