Lot Details
American Pallasitic Meteorite--An Admire Nugget
Stony Iron--Pallasite MG
Admire, Lyon Co., Kansas

A mass of 12 to 15lbs was plowed up in 1881, and other masses later, making a total weight of more than 100+ kilos. Admire is a mixture of nickel-iron and olivine crystals. They formed very deep near the core-mantle boundary in a planetary sized body. The present offering is rich in patina, with large olivine crystals visible throughout and emerging from the natural metal matrix.
Weighing 575 grams and measuring 8 1/2 x 2 1/2 x 1 1/2 in
