The BRAHIN meteorite was found in Russia, in 1807, it is a Pallasite type.
In this magnificent piece, we can observe both the interior and exterior of the meteorite
During World War II, Brahin's samples were stolen in Kiev by German soldiers and some samples also disappeared in Minsk, capital of Belarus
The area of the fall, which was 15 km long and 3 km wide, was contaminated in 1986 during the Chernobyl accident and is now in the Periodic Control Zone. The meteorites that were recovered after the accident are safe and are not contaminated because the radiation affects only the first inches of soil. However, the hunt for meteorites in the area is not entirely safe.
