Fell 27 July 2018
As many of you know, I have been working with the finders on this fall
since September of last year. They have been very tough with the price
and the pieces I bought will still be reflective of that. The money they
made has gone right back into improving the way of life for all the
people in the town by means of wells, solar, etc. There have been no
more finds since December and they are done looking. Not willing to buy
it all, they have asked me to consign the remainder of the fall as they
move on to their next project mining sapphires. In need of quick cash
for startup costs they have given me some room to wiggle.
This is the last of it, if any of them interest you we can discuss
creative solutions to get one in your hands.

An account from my suppliers:
HISTORY OF A FIRST FALL OF METEORITES WITH EYEWITNESSES IN MADAGASCAR
Hours of the fall Around 8 pm, on the evening of Friday, July 27, 2018.
The actual fall
It was a peaceful early evening with clear skies. The southern Malagasy
part is in the middle of the dry and hot season. The moon appeared on
the horizon in its full moon, dominating all the countryside, without
electricity, with its brilliant light. This usual peaceful full moon has
suddenly changed into an unprecedented, moving, historic full moon and
not like the others.
It began with a luminous trail, like a fireball and reached a certain
height of the ground, a detonation was heard, like a low noise of
thunder. The fireball exploded and turned into a rain of fire, like
fireworks. The fires then fell on the ground with successive rumblings
in several places, and the earth began to vibrate on fire with the
earth, like a small magnitude earthquake.
It is a frightening sight because it is unheard of and therefore
Just after the fall, some people living near certain areas of the falls
ran to see what had fallen from the sky. It is with great amazement that
they have learned, at a certain distance from the place of the fall,
that it is a fall of black stone from the sky.
Direct contact with meteorites When a person finally dared to approach
and touched the black stone, it was with great astonishment that this
person learned, by touch, that the stone was very icy. And all the
stones found that night, right after the fall, were incredibly cold,
because only a few minutes ago they were on fire.
Oh how great was the emotion of people taking a piece of stones of alien
origin! They are smooth, in places and strangely heavy.
After the fall, the eclipse
A few minutes after the fall, the sky was covered with a trail of smoke
that eventually hid the moon. Once the clouds of smoke dissipated, the
moon shone in full moonlight, but to the amazement of all, a small part
of the moon began to sink slowly and it was then that the people of this
little community were beginning to think that perhaps the moon stones
were coming off the moon and destroying the earth. It was the end of the
world. From that moment, people understood that it was no longer a show
but it is the apocalypse, the great stupor. People ran to hide from the
impending danger. The dark part was beginning to invade the greater part
of the moon. Then, the color of the moon turned red like blood,
presaging a grave danger for the earth. Then followed the total eclipse
for hours. The moon did not return to full moon again until early
Meteorites according to people
In this context, the meteorites were, according to the people, stones
that were torn off the moon and straying on the ground.
But to the dismay of all, it seems that the stones gave off a gas with
multiple effects, in contact, according to the sensitivity of people.
For some, the contact with the stone causes a small irritation to the
eyes and makes tears fall, while for others, irritation is felt in the
nostrils and causes a momentary runny nose.
