Isn't anyone curious, or is it so obvious you all are sparing me the embarrassment?

Looks familiar, but I can't put my finger on it. The crystals remind me of Shirokovsky.

I'm curious, of course; but not knowing anything about Pallasites, except their beauty, I cannot begin to guess.

Hi Davio,

Is the finder of this rock masked in the photos of its discovery?

Mike,
Bingo! Very good. I knew it would be you who would name it considering your previous Shirokovsky post. I was wondering if others would be able to put two and two together.

Hi Peter,
I'm not familiar with that. However if it's so, please post the info.

At the time of the "discovery" a photo was shown of the "finder", under water in scuba gear with the rock.

Peter,
I'm not sure but I think a Russian named Mikhail Medvedev was the first to be involved with the distribution of this Pseudometeorite. You may want to research this name further.

Hi Peter,
Thanks for the link. I'm assuming it will be auctioned off at the 2013 Tucson show during the Blood auction night. Does he have an auction early bid webpage yet?

Thanks, Peter. There's a few nice speimens up for auction. The ones I like will most likely be expensive. I bid on two meteorites.

Sorry, Martin. You have a beautiful piece of the best meteor-wrong on the planet thus far. As a matter of fact, it was your specimen photo that spurred me forward in securing one. O.K., you can come back and play again. :)

Don't know what's going on; but can we get back to Pallasites? They are a prime interest for a lot of us here. I, for one; love seeing the different types members have! :)

Frankly I don't know what's going on either, but here is my very first Pallasite. A 22.6 gram Seymchan.

Hi Davio,

Nice rock, I love Seymchan. I remember when it "magically" transformed from an iron to a pallasite.

Nice Olivine, Peter... It looks unshattered and clear from your photo.
