[additional] History: On 18 April 2012 additional stones were recovered by Robert Verish, also of San Diego, California. His first find (343.1g) was a nearly whole, slightly weathered individual stone. The subsequent stones (~650g) were all just a few meters away, forming a 20m wide “splatter zone” comprising ~24 badly weathered fragments, none of which could be physically-paired to the 343g stone.
