Among stones, it's going to be hard to beat Jilin, with its 1770 kg main
mass. There are photos of it in the metbull database:
http://www.lpi.usra.edu/meteor/index.php?code=12171. And let's not
forget the 1000-ish kg Norton County and the 900-ish kg Kunya-Urgench

There is a 1745 kg Sikhote-Alin iron in Moscow. I'm not sure if this
is the largest of those.

So, at a measly 600 kg, this Chelyabinsk stone doesn't come close to
being the champion (and it isn't a "fresh fall" any more to boot!).
