This pallasite was initially named Habaswein, after a neighbouring city where the first fragments were found. Eventually, the meteorite was officially named Sericho, after the area in Kenya where the impact took place.
Pallasites are very scarce meteorites in which olivines are mixed in a metal matrix.
And they account for only 1.7% of all known meteorites.

Chondrites are the oldest material in the Solar System, with an estimated formation age of 4,550 million years. A true gem of the universe in your hands.

The Campo del Cielo meteorite came to Earth about 4,500 years ago, when the largest known metal meteor shower fell in present-day Argentina. It was used by the pre-Columbian peoples to manufacture metal utensils.

Our items are checked, assessed and classified for your total guarantee and assurance. With a lifetime certificate of guarantee endorsed by the International Meteorite Association, of which we are members.

Owning a meteorite means having a small fragment of the universe in your hands.

Thank you for your trust.
And finally, we would like you to rate our items, so that we can further improve, if possible, our work.
