Sikhote-Alin Meteorite | 23.2 Grams | Individual | Iron IIAB | Shrapnel | SO24

This is a great looking Russian Sikhote-Alin classified meteorite weighing 23.2 grams. Its dimensions are 38x20X12 mm. This Iron (IIAB) Coarsest Octahedrite classified meteorite was recovered in Russia after the fall of February 12, 1947.

So far approximately 23 tons of this material have been recovered. This piece displays extremely well and is a very desirable size. These specimens are known as shrapnel specimens, ripped and torn edges reminiscent of bomb shrapnel. They broke due to atmospheric pressure and/or mid-air collisions, and possibly explosive fragmentation upon impact. These pieces are a good example of the shrapnel type Sikhote-Alin.

Would be a beautiful addition to any new or existing collection. Comes with a Canagem Collection specimen card.
