Bjurbole is the biggest recent meteorite fall found in Finland so far. This meteorite broke into many pieces when it hits the sea ice in the gulf of Finland, on the 12 March 1899.
328 kg of material were recovered from 8 meters deep (0.4 meter ice 0.5 meter water and 7 meters mud) by divers. The meteorite had made a 4 meter wide hole in the ice, and mud was spread over a 24 x 33 m wide area around the hole.
This meteorite is unusual in that it contains large condrules and is very fragile.
