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.
