Languages of publication
On 21 of July 2001, small fragment of metal has been found on side walk, near branch of Silesian University in Cieszyn, by Ms. Małgorzata Kotowiecki. After a few years, the metallic fragment was carefully study. The investigation show that the metallic element has meteoritic origin. The mineral composition of the meteorite (kamacite, taenite, tetraenite, troilite, daubreelite) classify it as an iron meteorite and the most probably is representative of octahedrite. The meteorite has features of shock metamorphism and represent very old fall. It could be supposed that the meteorite has been transported to the destination place, together with gravel.
