That is an awesome Fukang specimen, thank you for sharing!!

I'll take some macro shots of mine soon, it looks like a back lit shot is the standard for pallasites??

I have to admit to a weakness for pallasites although right now I only own 3. Here are my Brahin and my little Esquel. The Brahin is my favorite specimen outside my collection of lunars and martians.

Great photos... shame that some Pallasites are put in acid to get the peridot quality Olivine crystals out of them

18th century German naturalist Peter Pallas probably turnes around in his grave by the idea ...

In the words of some of my Chicago south-side buddies, "Money make ya funny!". I guess profit, for some, is paramount.

I compare it to the killing of wildlife all over the world,
either for its fur or to have it mounted in an attempt to prove to ones self how brave you want everyone else to think you are.
As in meteorites and wildlife all their natural beauty lost for ever.
