Dronino is named after the village in which it was found by a mushroom collector. Scientists later embarked on an exploration of the area and 600 fragments were recovered. It is thought due to the distribution of fragments found that the meteorite impact formed a now-buried crater. Unlike most iron meteorites, Dronino does not display a Widmanstätten pattern when etched. Rather, it reveals remarkable iron sulfide inclusions with an ameboid shape on a mirror finish background. Full individuals are gnarled and are a clear reminder of their extraterrestrial origin!
