Météorite Sericho. Pallasite du Kenya - 29.1 g

In 2016, two brothers were searching for their camels and came across several large, dense stones west of the village of Habaswein and south of Sericho, Kenya. There are no rocks in this area, so they decided they were meteorites. They spent several weeks collecting them with engine hoists and moving them to their homes in Habaswein. Though recognized as meteorites in 2016, the masses had been known to camel-herders for decades. One village elder said that as a child, he and his brothers would play on top of the stones. Since 2017 this meteorite has become a must-have in every meteorite collection. Pallasites are considered by many to be the most beautiful type of meteorite. They are thought to originate at the core-mantle boundary of differentiated asteroids, where the metallic core meets the lighter rocks. They were then shattered to space through another meteorite impact until they fell on Earth. Due to their inner beauty, some of them are used in jewelry or as aesthetic decoration when they are cut in 2 halves or sliced. This piece of Sericho meteorite is a clean complete individual. It has been legally exported from Kenya, with permission of the Ministry of Petroleum and Mining. Certificate of authenticity included. IMCA 5591. Packages are usually sent the morning after the auction. Shipping is combined in all my listings - if you win multiple items, only one shipping cost is paid. Do not miss this opportunity!
