An unknown grain

A fall of grain occurred during a thunderstorm on March 24, 1840, at Rajkit, India, according to Col. Sykes of the British Association in American Journal of Science, 1841-40. The natives were excited, “because it was grain of a kind unknown to them.” Botanists were unable to identify it as well.
