The Aiquile meteorite is the first Bolivian fall. It fell on November 20th, 2016. This is one of the most recent falls on record that was recovered and only a few pieces has been available for collectors. The main fragment fell 500m apart from a man who saw the impact on Earth of a 36 kilo stone. That piece is now in the museum of the city. It is classified as an H5 chondrite with weather grade of 'W0' as it is a fresh fall recovered shortly after hitting the Earth.
This specimen is around 70% covered in fusion crust, with observable matrix in the rest. The fusion crust is very fresh as seen in the pictures.
