Late Summer 2018
A choice 53 Gram Sihkote-Alin meteorite that shows the pitting, ablation and fusion crusts on all sides, a so called "complete individual". This is one of the most famed meteorite falls from 1947, the resulting Iron meteorite specimens are the coarsest octahedrites known. This piece has sharp and distinct "thumbprints" and the dark color and luster for this fall. Ex John Marshall collection.
