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

    Initially found in 2016 in Kenya, the Sericho Meteorite is a relatively "new" pallasite, at least in terms of its discovery and then hitting the market. Such beautiful material is replete with colorful Olivine crystals in a metallic composition making it popular among collectors. Total Known Weight of the find is 2.8 tons making it rather prolific, but exceptional examples like this gorgeous slice weighing 509 grams are not an everyday occurrence. This massive piece by surface area displays incredible crystalline coverage of golds and browns over the entirety of the metallic specimen. Measuring over 10 inches (25 cm) long, this slab boasts two spectacular sides. The offering has been sealed to ensure stability so it is visibly coated all over. Some of the vibrant crystals are translucent adding a further selling point to this highly collectible piece.
    Overall Measurements: 10.83 x 7.28 x 0.21 inches (27.50 x 18.50 x 0.53 cm), weighs 509 grams


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