Description

    Sikhote-Alin Meteorite "Shrapnel"
    Iron, Coarse Octahedrite - IIAB
    Maritime Territory
    Siberia, Russia (46°09'36"N, 134° 39'12"E)
    2.47 x 2.08 x 1.28 inches (6.27 x 5.28 x 3.24 cm) (256 grams)


    At over 250 grams, this piece of "shrapnel" from the Sikhote-Alin Meteorite fall of 1947 in Siberia, Russia is solid and quite sizable. This chunk from the widely witnessed fall has a "layered" texture over most of its rugged, metallic surface. The piece features a pronounced curved inset on one edge which adds to its significant dramatic appeal. This robust chunk is an excellent representation of the collectible Meteorite.

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