Gorgeous Brahin pallasite meteorite slice, weighing 240.9 grams and measuring approximately 187 mm x 144 mm x 3 mm. This incredibly attractive full slice has been expertly prepared in one of the world's top laboratories, polished on both sides to display rich, sea-green olivine (peridot) crystals suspended in a delicate lattice of shiny metal. This example shows a super high olivine density (approximately 80%), is cut thin for maximum translucency, and expertly prepared to show off its bright nickel-iron matrix. The Brahin meteorite was discovered in the early 1800s, in what is now Belarus, and it stands among the most alluring of pallasites. Accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from Aerolite Meteorites.
