Description

Pallasites are perhaps the most alluring of all meteorites, and they are certainly of great interest to collectors and enthusiasts. Pallasites consist of a nickel-iron matrix rich in colorful olivine crystals. Pallasites are believed to have formed at the core/mantle boundary of large asteroids and they are extremely rare. Out of nearly 65,000 officially recognized meteorites, there are only 130 known pallasites.
