This pallasite was initially named Habaswein, after a neighbouring city where the first fragments had been found. Eventually, the meteorite was officially named Sericho, after the area in Kenya where the impact took place.
Pallasites are very scarce meteorites in which olivines are mixed in a metal matrix and
they account for only 1.7% of all known meteorites.
These come from the mantle of large asteroids.
