Canadian Meteorite Slice
Abee fell on June 9, 1952 in Alberta, Canada and was found five days later in the wheat field of farmer, Harry Buryn. Recovered from a six-foot-deep crater, a mass of 107 kilograms was found. It was the third largest meteorite to be found in Canada and represents one of the most rare known groups of meteorites. Abee's brecciated structure represents a violent series of impact events. It is composed of varying sized clasts rimmed in granulated metal within a fine-grained groundmass. The present example is a large slice of this uncommon meteorite.
