In this lot we are offering up for auction a beautiful and complete piece of Sericho, a pallasite type meteorite which was first found in Kenya in 2016. This is a good-sized meteorite, completely clean and stabilised by electrolysis to prevent oxidation. Ideal size and quality for a great collection. Sculptural!
Pallasites are very scarce meteorites in which olivines are mixed in a metal matrix. They come from the mantle of great asteroids and they account for just 1.7% of the meteorites we know.
This pallasite was initially named Habaswein, after a city close to where the first fragments were found. Eventually, the meteorite was officially named Sericho, after the area in Kenya where the first impact took place.
A fantastic addition to your collection. Do not miss this opportunity!
All our meteorites come with an IMCA (International Meteorite Collectors Association) certificate, so we guarantee for life the authenticity of all our meteorites. Buy with guarantees.
Regards and best wishes.
