SERICHO METEORIET. Lot, Groothandel. Pallasiet. - 56.6 g
Habaswein, Kenia

Excellent lot of Sericho, pallasite type, found in Kenya, 2016. Special for wholesalers, business or reselling..

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 a few weeks collecting everything and they took them home to Habaswein. After researching, 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, neighbouring city of the first found fragments. Finally, the meteorite was officially named Sericho, the area of Kenya where the impact took place.

A fantastic lot to add to your collection, to give as a present, or to resell. Do not miss this opportunity!

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