Pallasite Meteorite Collection


While all pallasites are by definition a mix of nickel-iron and olivine, the nickel-iron matrix can vary in relative nickel content, and the olivine crystals can range from nearly perfect spherules to broken up, angular fragments. The olivine crystals can also be anywhere from a few millimeters in diameter to groups of crystals literally the size of footballs!
