Huckitta, Ancient Australian Pallasite, Shale Micromount

$5.00

Huckitta was first discovered in 1924. It was located approx. 17km north of Alice Springs Australia. The odd material was hard and blackened. It was eventually analyzed and shown to be a main-group pallasite meteorite. It's odd appearance is a direct product of it's advanced terrestrial age. This meteorite fell many thousands of years ago and terrestrial minerals have replaced the unoxidized metal and most of the olivines. Huckitta is one of the oldest extant pallasites.
