Description

Iron Ungrouped, Found in Russia, 2000

Dronino is named after the village in which is was found by a mushroom collector. Scientists later embarked on an exploration of the area and 600 fragments were recovered. It is thought due to the distribution of fragments found that the meteorite impact formed a now-buried crater. Unlike most iron meteorites, Dronino does not display a Widmansatten Pattern when etched. Rather, it reveals remarkable iron sulfide inclusions with an ameboid shape on a mirror finish background. Full individuals are gnarled and are a clear reminder of their extraterrestrial origin!

    I purchased this magnificent specimen, and proudly display it in a special protective, lighted case on top of my piano. It is truly a museum quality display.
