In 2016, two brothers were looking for their camels and met came across large dense rocks at the West of the village of Habaswein and South of Sericho, in Kenya. There are no rocks in this area, so they deduced that these were meteorites. They spent several weeks gathering them with motorised hoists and carrying them to their home in Habaswein. Although they were only recognised as meteorites in 2016, these masses had been known to camel breeders for decades. An elder from the village said that he and his brothers would play on the stones as children. Nowadays, more than 2800 kg have been discovered.

Delivery times: from 10 to 21 days. (May take longer for Italy, Belgium and China because it may be held an extra 14 days by customs).
