PALLASITE METEORITES FOR SALE

Pallasite meteorites are a fairly rare class of stony-iron meteorites. They were once believed to have originated at the core-mantle boundary of asteroids that shattered through impacts, though a recent hypothesis is that they are a mixture of core and mantle minerals. Pallasite meteorites consist of olivine (peridot) crystals that are surrounded in an iron-nickel matrix. Some pallasites will display interweaving structures known as Widmanstätten patterns or Thomson structures in areas of coarser metal. These structures are comprised of iron-nickel crystals commonly in the form of kamacite and taenite.

Pallasites are quite rare with less than a hundred known falls and only four having been documented as observed during their fall. This represents less than 0.1% of classified meteorites.
