The Bendegó meteorite was discovered back in 1784 in Brazil. It is the biggest meteorite ever found in Brazil with over 5000 kgs of weight. It has been in the National Museum of Rio de Janeiro since 1888. It gained international attention when in 2018 after a fire that destroyed the museum, the meteorite seemed to remain intact among the ashes. It is classified under the rare group iron IC.
