Description

The slice of Pallasite meteorite came from an Admire meteorite which was discovered in 1881 in Kansas by a farmer plowing a field. It’s named after the city of Admire in Lyon County.Studies have concluded that the Admire pallasite formed at the core-mantle boundary of an ancient asteroid. Pallasites are the rarest of meteorites; less than 1% of all meteorites are pallasites. Pallasites are comprised primarily of olivine crystals of peridot quality in an iron-nickel matrix with some additional traces of accessory minerals.
