Item 6003 - Sericho Pallasite Meteorite Matched End Cuts Catalog 526 (Apr 2018)

Back To Previous Page
(we are no longer accepting bids on this item)
Estimate: $16,000.00 +
Sold Price: $7,348.78 (includes buyer's premium)


Extraordinary large Sericho pallasite meteorite (Kenya) matched end cuts with polished faces, featuring large quantities of olivine crystals on the cut faces, with an appealing color palette of greens, browns, and yellows. One piece weighs 2,798 grams and measures approximately 170 mm x 165 mm x 65 mm. The other weighs 2,487 grams and measures approximately 165 mm x 155 mm x 55 mm. This remarkable specimen was one large mass, cut in two with both faces polished. Accompanied by a certificate of authenticity signed by Geoff Notkin of Aerolite Meteorites Inc. and the TV show Meteorite Men, as well as a specimen identification card.

Few things create as much excitement in the meteorite world as the discovery of a new pallasite—a stony-iron type of meteorite abundant in attractive olivine crystals (also known as extraterrestrial peridot). The Sericho pallasite (sometimes unofficially called Habaswein), found quite recently in Kenya is just such a discovery. This impressive pairing shows off the beauty of the olivine-abundant interior of the meteorite as well as the rusty weathered exterior crust. A truly spectacular display piece.

Due to the size and/or fragile nature of this item, special packing and shipping options will apply. Please call RR Auction for a quote.
