It was found January 25, 2003 near Riddleville, Washington County, Georgia, almost exactly 500 miles southwest of the generally accepted 34.5 ma impact site in what is now Chesapeake Bay, Virginia. A little over 2000 Georgiaites are known with a total weight in the neighborhood of 12 kg. 17.9 gms, 53.1 mm X 22.4 mm X 14 mm. Flawless skin. (author’s personal collection).
