NEWLY FOUND ‘SERICHO’ PALLASITE... New find in 2016...!!!
LARGE SLICE 67 g.
Size: 114 x 74 x 4 mm
The very fine olivines in a structured iron matrix make this new discovered meteorite a must have for the lovers of meteorites, pallasites and the lovers of unique beautiful rocks.
In 2016, two brothers were searching for their camels and came across several large, dense stones south of Sericho, Kenya.
There are no rocks in this area, so they decided they were meteorites.
They spent several weeks collecting them with engine hoists and moving them to their homes in Habaswein.
Though recognised as meteorites in 2016, the masses had been known to camel-herders for decades.
Tip: In order to prevent rust, the project added a rust-proof coating…!!!
