Pallasite, Found in Eastern Kenya, 2017
Few things create as much excitement in the meteorite world as the discovery of a new pallasite. The Sericho pallasite (sometimes called Habaswein), found quite recently in Kenya is just such a discovery. Numerous masses of varying size and widely varying degrees of weathering have been recovered. Our examples come directly from Kenya and the masses from which our slices are taken show minimal weathering. In fact, the exterior of our best masses show virtually no weathering at all, as indicated by the green crystals present in these specimens. Our slices have been beautifully prepared by an expert in pallasite cutting and polishing. Please note that they have not been coated with lacquer or other protective sprays! The faces show a natural high-gloss polish as a result of meticulous attention to detail in the lab.
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. With Imilac and Fukang selling at $35/gram and Esquel changing hands for as much as $70/gram, how do you feel about excellent, high quality full pallasite slices starting at only $6/gram and end cuts for less. A rare chance to acquire pallasite at an irresistible price.
