Superb Sikhote-Alin Meteorite
Iron-Nickel
Sikhote-Alin Mountains, Siberia

It is quite rare to find such a large and aesthetically pleasing Sikhote-Alin specimen as this, weighing over 6kgs: the meteorite field has been well searched and only small specimens are currently being found. This large specimen boasts highly coveted regmaglypts, (thumbprints) which formed during its descent through Earth's atmosphere. Sikhote-Alin broke up twice during its fall to Earth with only the higher breakup creating the meteorites with regmaglypts. Here is an opportunity to acquire an exceptional specimen from a famous meteorite fall. Weighing 6.0 kilograms and measuring 7 x 7 x 3 1/2 in
