Here is a piece of meteorite shrapnel from the explosion of the Sikhote Alin meteorite which was recovered after the witnessed fall in 1947. This piece was twisted and shredded by the explosion, then the still-molten nickel iron was formed into a flattned shrapnel shape as it cooled, so it is an oriented meteorite. This is a great meteorite specimen, from one of the world's best documented and most historic impact events.
