Iron Meteorite - Coarse Octahedrite IIAB.
B. Spettel and R. Bartoschewitz
A mass of 14.85 kg was found in July 1989 between the gravels of the Araguari River. It is a coarse octahedrite (10-13mm) of the IIAB type, reminiscent of the meteorite of Santa Luzia, found hundreds of kilometers from this location, however it is very difficult but not impossible that a mass of Santa Luzia may have been taken by someone and abandoned in this place.
