    Sericho Meteorite End Cut
    Pallasite
    Kenya - (1°5'41.16"N, 39°6'8.30"E)
    Found: 2016

    This most unique angular wedge is clearly a pallasite, and this example of Sericho from Kenya features one major and several minor polished display surfaces full of suspended crystals. In this case very large crystals amid numerous smaller ones cover the reflective metallic surfaces. The underside of this brick shows the expected, naturally rough exterior of this variety of meteorites. Shaped like a shallow ramp, the unusual somewhat geometric form is a special accent piece of pallasite meteorite with a bold look. This odd specimen is reflective, with a nice brilliance, and will make one out of this world paperweight.
    Overall Measurements: 4.03 x 4.01 x 1.34 inches (10.24 x 10.18 x 3.40 cm), weighs 794 grams

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