Remarks: A stone fell near a girl's tent during spring 1986, two weeks before her wedding took place. The stone that fell from the skies was broken into pieces by the guests during the ceremony, looking for gold that might have been hidden inside by God. They only found stone!
13 years later the story reached M. Franco's ears and he decided to search for that meteorite. With the help of people living in the area he found some fragments... This fragment is one of them
