Pallasites are very scarce meteorites in which olivines are mixed in a metal matrix. They come from the mantle of great asteroids and they represent jus 1.7% of the known.

Two brothers were looking for their camels near the village of Habaswein in Kenya when they found several large stones with no relation to the surroundings. Upon checking their heavy weight and their iron content, the brothers concluded that these should be meteorites. They spent some weeks collecting everything and took them home to Habaswein. After an investigation it turned out to be a meteorite!

We are IMCA (International Meteorite Collectors Association) members with number #7412, and as such we guarantee the authenticity of all our meteorites. Buy with guarantees.
