Hello List,
I have some questions I was wondering about:
Which other meteorites than Sikhote-Alin is showing
shrapnel forms?
Are there any pallasites showing this? Mesosiderites?
Metal-veined chondrites?

Is generally shrapnel forms indicative of a _very big fall_,
meaning its breakup (last explosion) happend at a low altitude,
so that thumbprints did not have time to form?
This would explain scarcity of shrapnels.
