Description

Pronounced “too – ahh – tey”; this desirable witnessed fall followed a daytime explosion, described as being “extraordinarily loud.” Approximately 400 stones were recovered, most of them quite small. The total known weight is estimated at less  than 30 kg, which is very low. Stones exhibited rich, black fusion crust and were very quickly snapped up by collectors and museums. One or more stones were reported to have landed on, or near, villagers’ huts in the area, and Thuathe is one of only a tiny handful of meteorites that were picked up almost immediately after the fall.
