Only a short time ago in 2016, two brothers came across dense stones in an area south of Sericho, Kenya. They immediately suspected the material to be meteorite, as the area was otherwise devoid of rock. They rented a engine hoist and spent several weeks transporting the material to their home in Habaswein. Although the brothers were the first to realize the value of the meteorite and transport it for resale, for decades, many other camel herders knew of the rocks existence. Some of the older herders said they once played on the rocks as children. However, the date of the actual fall is in question. In 2017. Having heard of the Sericho find, meteorite hunters Moritz Kar and Michael Farmer traveled to the area, where they struck a deal with the brothers.
