These resulting angular fragments starkly illuminate the catastrophic forces inflicted upon incoming meteorites: melted, torn, and blasted, they so resembled the remnants of wartime bombing that they were named shrapnel. Nearly all recovered Sikhote-Alin specimens were cleaned by the finders. Some were wire-brushed, others were tumbled. Unfortunately sometimes in the cleaning process finer surface details were lost forever.
