Toluca is an iron meteorite, type IAB-sLL (explanation at the Meteoritical Bulletin). It was found in 1776 near Toluca in Mexico and classifies as a coarse octahedrite. Etching of polished surfaces reveals a Widmanstätten pattern, as done for this specimen. Like many iron meteorites, the metal is succeptible to oxidation.
