AbstractBagnone, the largest Italian iron meteorite (48 kg), was found as a single mass at the beginning of the 20th century while ploughing a field close to the Bagnone Castle (Massa Carrara, northern Tuscany). The morphology of the external surface suggests that Bagnone represents a complete individual. It is classified as a medium octahedrite (average bandwidth = 0.96 mm) of the IIIAB chemical group, based on inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry analyses.
