    Maslyanino Meteorite Slice
    Iron - IAB Complex
    Novosibirsk Region, Russia - (54° 20'N, 84°12'E)

    The find of the Maslyanino Meteorite occurred on May 25, 1992 in the Novosibirsk Region of Russia, when an agronomist discovered a 26 kg mass of the silicated fine octahedrite IAB in a wheat field. As slices of Meteorites go, this variety is fairly attractive with a lot of silicate inclusions adding to the nice appearance of the iron sample. This piece, weighing 70 grams, loosely resembles the state of Nevada and has a flat top with an irregular taper down to a rounded point. The shiny surface is punctuated on about half of its silvery metallic face with dark blebs of various shapes and sizes. The slice is about 4.5 inches (11.43 cm) from top to bottom. This is a fine representation of the Maslyanino Meteorite mass.
    Overall Measurements: 4.64 x 2.60 x 0.10 inches (11.79 x 6.60 x 0.25 cm), weighs 70 gm (2.47 oz.)

    [Scale: 1 inch, with mark at 1 cm]
