Omschrijving
SERICHO Meteoriet. Pallasiet. Compleet stuk - 9×6×6 cm - 455 g
Habaswein, Kenia

The specimen we auction is fantastic to either cut or leave in its natural condition. Excellent size. Do not miss this opportunity!

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! More specifically a ‘Pallasite’, very rare meteorites in which olivines are combined in a metallic matrix.

This pallasite initially was called Habaswein, the neighbouring city of the first found fragments. Finally, the meteorite was officially called Sericho, the area of Kenya where the impact took place.

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