TREASURE GEMS PRESENTS: PERIDOT FROM SPACE!!!
This is an incredible peridot from a pallasite meteroite that contains gem quality peridot in a iron / nickle matrix.
This is what pallasites look like before the peridot is removed:
Pallasite meteorites are very rare. To date only 61 are known with a mere four of those having been observed while falling. According to Natural History Department Director Thomas Lindgren, “Less than 1% of all meteorites are pallasites, the most alluring of allmeteorites due to their aesthetic appeal.” Pallasites - meteorites composed of approximately 50% olivine and peridot crystals and 50% nickel-iron – are thought to be relics of forming planets.
