The Kimba meteorite is a single stone of 1.492 kg found between 5 and 10 km south of Kimba, South Australia (33° 13′ S 136° 25′ E). It consists of olivine (Fa19.2 n = 15), low-Ca pyroxene (Fs 16.7Wo1.2 n = 10), high-Ca pyroxene and troilite. All of the iron-nickel metal and most of the troilite appear to have oxidized to a mixture of iron and iron nickel oxides and hydroxides. Based on its texture and mineral chemistry, the Kimba meteorite is classified as an H4 chondrite of shock stage S1 and weathering grade W4.
