Abstract

There is invariably considerable interest attached to
the discovery and identification of meteoric substances.
I therefore assume that a few remarks respecting the
recent acquisition of a small but veritable meteroic
stone, fully authenticated as having been unearthed in
this State, may be of interest. The specimen in question
makes the second which has been discovered in this
Island, and brings the total number recorded up to date
as having been obtained in Australasia, to about 33
examples.
