In 2016, two brothers were searching for their camels and came across several large, dense stones west of the village of Habaswein and south of Sericho, Kenya. There are no rocks in this area, so they decided they were meteorites. They spent several weeks collecting them with engine hoists and moving them to their homes in Habaswein. Though recognized as meteorites in 2016, the masses had been known to camel-herders for decades. One village elder said that as a child, he and his brothers would play on top of the stones. Since 2017 this meteorite has been available for the public and has become a must-have in every meteorite collection. It has been legally exported from Kenya, with permission of the Ministry of Petroleum and Mining.
