Research is reported on the Yardymly meteorite, which fell 24 Feb 1959. Studies show that it is composed of 95 kamacite Fe, Ni and 5 schreibersite, rhabdite, and taenite including plessite. Iron content is 92-93, and nickel content is 6. The importance of this study lies in the reliable information gained on the mineral composition and magnetic properties of the meteorites. Author
