Numerous fragments and several whole stones, totaling 19.62 kg, were found by an American prospector and his hunting partners in 2013 in Sonora, Mexico, while metal detecting for gold nuggets. The first piece (and the largest), a complete individual weighing 2,396 g, was found on the surface in a sandy area on the eastern side of a large dry wash, a few kilometers northwest of the town of El Boludo. A search with metal detectors of the surrounding area produced numerous additional fragments and a few smaller whole stones. We met with the prospector, purchased all known pieces, and proceeded with the classification process. El Boludo is an Aerolite exclusive.
