Meteorite - Pallasite with Magnetite - unusual
stock #20.FC-051-(9154)
Sericho
Islolo, Kenya
3.3 x 3.2 x 2.5 CM (miniature)
price: $580


A very unusual Meteorite that is unlike any we have seen before. This is a Pallasite with many clustered Olivene blobs with minimal amounts of rusted iron "cement" which is magnetic. This makes this look like a conglomerate but close exam shows the Olivene and Iron are highly weathered but there are a few still bright spots. The Olivene inside the crusts is gemmy, from a yellow-orange color to some areas that are almost colorless. The Sericho fall produced some large and important pallasites, this one is unusual as there is much less Iron and a very high percentage of Olivene. Very different look that at first does not look like any typical meteorite! 25 Grams
