Suara.com – Pieces of space rock (meteorit) is rarely found in muddy field excavations.
Experts believe it is part of a 4.5 billion year old meteorite, thought to be the first to land in Britain in 30 years.
Reported page The Sun, Monday (12/7/2021), the last fragment was excavated about four miles from the first.
The yellow-green rock, which contains the building blocks of life, is larger than the original find. According to some, it was similar to a human face.
This discovery, almost certainly belongs to the same meteor that was seen burning over Gloucestershire in February.
The fragments were later found in sheep dung on a farm in Winchcombe.
The last find was in the Cotswolds village of Woodmancote.
Chemist Derek Robson, of Loughborough, Leics, hailed his discovery as a “very special moment”.
Previously, some rock fragments were recovered from a fireball that lit up the sky over southern England more than a week ago.

The rocks fell in the area of the town of Winchcombe in Gloucestershire. A resident first alerted experts after noticing a pile of charred stones in a corner in his driveway.
This is the first incident in the UK after meteor material was last found in the UK 30 years ago.
The researchers were excited about this finding because of the rarity of this rock type.
The rock fragments are carbonaceous chondrites, a rock material that retains the unchanged chemicals from the formation of the Solar System 4.6 billion years ago.
