Per the OED, the adjectival form is Iridian (eye-rid'-ee-un). kwami 07:05, 2005 Jun 19 (UTC)

Newer source lists Mass ≈ 2.39×1019Kg [1] Will wait 1 week for feedback on this one before updating. Abyssoft 04:47, 4 September 2006 (UTC)

Here's what mass estimates i've been able to track down:
Author Year Mass (in Solar mass × 10-12) note link
Pitjeva 2004 5.2 ± 0.8 [2]
Kuznetsov 2001 15.6 ± 3.8 repeated by Kochetova
Kochetova 2004 14.1 ± 1.4 reference mentioned in the link above

[3]

Chernetenko et al 2005 12.0 ± 0.9 the webpage mentioned above (same group as Kochetova) [4]
Pitjeva 2005 6.3 ± 0.1 IAU Ephemeris [5]
The new estimates seem to agree with each other here, but they give pretty mad densities for an S-type asteroid. Even the latest slightly smaller value of 12.0 leads to 5.6 g/cm³. I might believe that for an M type, but it looks pretty suspicious here.

I would go with the old Pitjeva value and maybe reference the new website next to it for completeness. Deuar 23:30, 4 September 2006 (UTC)

I updated the above table and the article to use the latest Pitjeva values. —RP88 17:51, 15 March 2007 (UTC)
