Golden pallasite
H. 1 19/32 in - L. 1 19/32 in - P. 1 in
Rare pallasite of type "Golden Pallasite" of 60.39 g. It was in 2018 that nomads discovered in the Sahara desert, a set of meteorites from the same fall. Exceptional in more than one type. Indeed, the pallasites are very rare but it is also, by their astonishing form, the golden pallasites were naturally carved by the wind of sand during the thousands of years of their terrestrial stay. And it is especially to their golden patina that they owe their nickname of Golden Pallasite. These meteorites are highly sought after for their unique beauty in the world of meteorites. The discoverer, a nomad of the Sahara desert, gave this name because he knew the great rarity, the great value, and under the sun of the desert, the brilliance of these meteorites evoked the brightness of gold. The Golden Pallasite is accompanied by a polished brass support that enhances its beauty.
