Place of find: Emery, Hanson County, South Dakota.

43° 33'48"N, 97° 35'W.

Class and type: Stony-iron. Mesosiderite.

Number of individual specimens: 1

Total weight: 16.7 kg

Circumstances of find: Discovered on a stone pile by a 12 year old farm boy who was trying to break stones by smashing them down upon the stone pile rather than assisting in' clearing stones from the field so that plowing could begin. When this "black stone" was found to be so much heavier than the others, he took it home. It lay in the farm yard from about 1962 until it was recognized as a meteorite in 1968.
