PES pallasite meteorite

This page is currently not sponsored. Click here to sponsor this page.
A grouplet named for a pallasite that was found near Eagle Station, Kentucky, in 1880. They all contain highly fragmented olivines, intermixed with small, irregular olivine splinters, in a nickel-iron matrix. The olivine is extraordinarily iron-rich, and the metal consists of higher nickel content than any other pallasites.
