    Esquel Meteorite Slice
    Pallasite, PMG
    Chubut, Argentina
    Found: 1951


    This sample of the Esquel Meteorite that was found in Argentina in 1951 is "paper" thin and only weighs 71 grams, but the slice is obviously highly translucent and fires in the light with a plethora of green and gold Olivine crystals. The finish is not smooth and slick, but the crystallization makes this a fine pallasite.
    Overall Measurements: 5.04 x 3.28 x 0.09 inches (12.81 x 8.33 x 0.22 cm), weighs 71 grams

    Provenance: The Property from an East Coast Collection
    Phillips, New York, June 8, 1996 (lot 220)


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