This meteorite is a large piece of "shrapnel" that was bent and twisted by the force of the explosion when the meteorite blew up. The unpolished metallic black surface has streaks that show the way the air flowed over the molten metal as it cooled.  This is a very fine large specimen from this celebrated meteorite, in a size and quality that is very hard to find these days.
