This rare pallasite meteoritewas found in 1810 in Belarus. The single mass weighed 823 kg. This slice features beautiful orange and green olivine crystals – the mineral form of peridot – suspended in a nickel iron matrix. Pallasite meteorites are a fascinating mixture of stony iron matrix and the silicate olivine, where in planetary bodies heavier iron forms a core and lighter, rock-forming minerals comprise a mantle. These meteorites – the class of which comprises less than 1% of all known meteorites – are likely the result of collisions between asteroids in the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter in the early days of our solar system. These asteroids ultimately fragment into meteorites which fall to earth so that you can hold this slice of the heavens in your hands.
