The Fukang Pallasite. Pallasites are a type of iron meteorite, quite rare, made out of large olivine crystals in an iron-nickel matrix. Olivine is a a magnesium iron silicate quite common in our planet’s subsurface, but which weathers fast when exposed to the surface. An anonymous finder recovered a 1003 kg specimen near Fukang, China in 2000. These extra-terrestrial gemstones mirror the stellar beauty of the cosmos. The Fukang Pallasite is a specimen that clearly out shines all meteorites of its class. See more photos here.
