Sikhote-Alin Meteorite 06, 3 x 2.5 cm 14.8g Genuine meteorite from space!
An iron meteorite fell on the Sikhote-Alin Mountains, in southeastern Russia, in 1947. Though large iron meteorite falls had been witnessed previously and fragments recovered, never before in recorded history had a fall of this magnitude been observed. The Sikhote-Alin meteorite is classified as an iron meteorite belonging to the chemical group IIAB and with a coarse octahedrite structure. It is composed of approximately 93% iron, 5.9% nickel, 0.42% cobalt, 0.46% phosphorus, and 0.28% sulfur, with trace amounts of germanium and iridium. Minerals present include taenite, plessite, troilite, chromite, kamacite, and schreibersite.
Rocks from space; commonly 4.5 billion years old up to 13 billion years old. Meteorites come from Mars and the Moon, the heads of comets, the asteroid belt and the debris of the “big bang”. This all sounds dramatic and wonderful and it is, but it must be mentioned that no mineral has yet been found in, or from, space that does not exist on the earth. Crystalline structures are different as they are formed in the vacuum of space so there are no air gaps between molecules as there are in crystals formed on Earth. Meteorites come in three classes; irons, chondrites and achondrites. They are usually brown or black (possibly silver when polished). Other space material includes; tektite and moldavite.
