Description


Extraordinary large Sericho pallasite meteorite partial slice, featuring large quantities of olivine crystals on the cut and polished faces. The partial polished and etched slice weighs 1,990 grams and measures approximately 365 mm x 157 mm x 10 mm. Few things create as much excitement in the meteorite world as the discovery of a new pallasite. The Sericho pallasite, found quite recently in Kenya is just such a discovery. Numerous masses of varying size and widely varying degrees of weathering have been recovered. This example come directly from Kenya and the mass from which our slices are taken show minimal weathering, as indicated by the green crystals present in this specimen. This slice has been beautifully prepared by an expert in pallasite cutting and polishing. Olivine crystals account for about 70% of the area of cut faces, and they show slight translucency with an attractive color palette ranging from light green to jade green, orange, and brown. A rare chance to acquire such a stunning pallasite example. 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.
