Coricho Meteorit (Kenia, 2016). PALLASITA. Komplettes Stück - 46.7 g
Kenia

This pallasite initially was called Habaswein, a neighbouring city of the first found fragments. Finally, the meteorite was officially called Sericho, the area of Kenya where the impact took place. Pallasite are very scarce meteorites in which olivines are mixed in a metal matrix. They come from the mantle of great asteroids and they represent jus 1.7% of the known.

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 took them home to Habaswein. After an investigation it turned out to be a meteorite!

Fantastic specimen to add to your collection. Do not miss this opportunity!

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