Indochinites were formed when a large meteorite struck about 700,000 years ago. The crater is believed to be in Laos in the Bolaven Plateau. Indochinite can be found as far as Australia. The further away they are from the crater, the smaller they become.
Indochinites over 100 grams are rare. They are only found in close proximity to the crater. They are usually flat or drop-shaped. Pieces like the one offered here are great rarities.
Old collection, found around 1950 or 1960. The location is "South Japan". None can be found there. Most likely, the find site is Laos
