Nickel-iron

This page is currently not sponsored. Click here to sponsor this page.
Name:
Taken from the composition
Dana 7 gave this species name to the series of face centred cubic nickel iron alloys with an iron content ranging from 0 to 75%. It encompassed the high nickel terrestrials: Awaruite, Josephinite, Souesite, and Bobrovkite; as well as the low nickel meteorites: Edmonsonite, Taenite, and the mixture Plessite. Contemporary usage breaks the series into low nickel Taenite, high nickel Awaruite, and nearly pure Nickel.
