More Details About the Zenda Meteorite

The Zenda meteorite was discovered in 1955. It was recovered in N599 Mill St, Lake Geneva, WI 53147, USA (42.51333, -88.48944). It has a mass of 3700 grams.

Zenda is considered a “Valid” meteorite. “Valid” meteorites are typical meteorites with average weathering, while “relict” meteorites are those that have been extremely altered, either due to weathering over time or human intervention.

Zenda’s official classification is Iron, IAB complex. The classification “Iron, IAB complex” refers to a type of iron meteorite that belongs to the IAB complex group but hasn’t been further categorized into a specific subgroup within that complex. Iron meteorites are primarily composed of iron and nickel metals that solidified from a molten state, and the IAB complex includes various subgroups and ungrouped meteorites within its classification.

The Zenda meteorite is a “Found” meteorite. Meteorites are classified as “falls” if they were observed falling and recovered, while “finds” are those discovered later, often weathered by longer exposure to Earth’s environment and without a record of being seen as they fell.
