Pallasites contain approximately 50% metal (Iron and Nickel) and 50% silicates (in olivine form). They come from inside large asteroids. Pallasites are one of the most beautiful types of meteorites existing. Its name comes from the German zoologist and botanist Peter Simon Pallas, who discovered, in 1772, the first specimen of this type of meteorite in Siberia, Russia.

At Expometeoritos, we take care of dissemination, talks, workshops, analysis, classification and exhibitions of Meteorites.

We are members of:

All our pieces are certified and we also deliver the analysis of the chemical composition if the value of the piece exceeds €300, carried out in our facilities by X-ray Spectrography.
