Stony - Iron Meteorite

Here is a nice 2.5 gram fragment of The IMILAC Meteorite. This meteorite was first found in 1822 in The Atacama Desert of Chile.

A pallasite is a type of stony-iron meteorite. It consists of cm-sized olivine crystals of peridot quality in an iron-nickel matrix. Coarser metal areas develop Widmanstätten patterns upon etching. Minor constituents are schreibersite, troilite, chromite, pyroxenes, and phosphates (whitlockite, stanfieldite, farringtonite, and merrillite). Pallasites were once thought to originate at the core-mantle boundary of differentiated asteroids that were subsequently shattered through impacts. An alternative recent hypothesis is that they are impact-generated mixtures of core and mantle materials.
