In the hand of its finder, rests a 176 gram fully-crusted, chondritic stone - Nevada's latest meteorite is a "cold find" (a new locality).

More information will be forthcoming. But for now, this finder is busy searching for any more siblings from this asteroidal parent body.

For Reference:

If you have found a new Nevada meteorite and would like to report it 
and get a "provisional" name, or even easier, you have made a find 
from a known, formally named locality and would like to have a 
provisional number issued, 
please contact the Editor of the Meteoritical Bulletin, Dr. Michael K. Weisberg
