Two masses of 199kg and 57kg fell, H.Backlund, Bull. Acad. Sci. Petrograd, 1916, 10, p.1817, Geol. För. Förh. Stockholm, 1917, 39, p.105, M.H.Hey, Cat. Met., 1966, p.61. Analysis, 5.48% Ni, E.P.Henderson, Am. Miner., 1941, 26, p.546 (M.A.8-195). From the shape of the two known masses, it is concluded that a third mass remains to be found, E.L.Krinov, Meteoritika, 1946, 3, p.59 (M.A.10-174), M.H.Hey [loc. cit.].
