    Description

    Brahin Meteorite Block
    Pallasite, PMG
    Gomel', Belarus - (52° 30'N, 30° 20'E)
    Found: 1810

    This blocky specimen of Brahin Meteorite is not quite geometric and offers a unique form representing the Pallasite from Belarus. Dense and heavy confirmed by its weight of 378 grams, this rustic specimen has a few "rough edges" but presents as an intriguing way to showcase this variety. Stabilized with five finished and one partially smooth surface, this example displays dense golden-brown crystals over the reflective metallic faces in fine form. This Pallasite is intense, and this highly worked piece shows a product of fine raw material, excellent craftsmanship and unusual appearance that is out of this world.
    Overall Measurements: 3.07 x 1.45 x 1.34 inches (7.79 x 3.68 x 3.41 cm), weighs 378 grams


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