I am quite attached to this intriguing part slice, which was the test cut from the large Seymchan mass I acquired, directly from the finders, and described as “the finest transitional pallasite ever recovered.” One slice sold at auction in NYC for $45,000. Etched, and packed with dark olivine crystals, it is a moody beauty.
