Description
BRAHIN XXL piece with outer crust - 377 g
Belarus, Russia

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.

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

We are members of:
.- IMCA (International Meteorites Collectors Association) #8187
.- Meteoritical Society
.- American Meteor Society

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.
