This is an exquisite etched translucent part slice of the Admire Pallasite, named after the place near where it was found, Admire, Kansas.
The crystals of golden green Olivine exhibited are suspended in a gleaming Nickel-Iron matrix. The first specimen of Admire was found in 1881 and is readily identified by large polycrystalline areas that cleaved into highly angular shards, and, rarely, the distribution of these angular crystals are as aesthetic as in this example. Less than 1% of all Meteorites are Pallasites, which is the most resplendent extraterrestrial substance known. Truly an amazing slice to have for any collector.
