Lot 4015

Beautiful Fukang pallasite meteorite partial slice, characterized by extraordinarily large and colorful olivine crystals (also known as extraterrestrial peridot). Etched and polished on both faces, the partial slice weighs 77.6 grams and measures approximately 80 mm x 87 mm x 2 mm. The main mass was discovered in 2000 in Xinjiang Province, China, and this meteorite has rapidly become a favorite among collectors due to the stunning and enormous olivine crystals. The absolute finest display piece. Accompanied by a certificate of authenticity signed by Geoff Notkin of Aerolite Meteorites Inc. and the TV show Meteorite Men, as well as a specimen identification card.

Estimate: $3500-$4500
