What is Pallasite!?

Only 61 Pallasite meteorites have ever been found! Luckily the supply is big enough that we can include it in our rings as it is a truly fascinating material.
Pallasite details and history
Most meteorites are either iron meteorites, which are almost completely made of metal, or stony meteorites, which have mostly silicate minerals. But Pallasite meteorites are a unique type that have nearly equal amounts of metal and silicate crystals. These are called stony-iron meteorites.
Pallasite was named after naturalist Peter Simon Pallas who studied the first known type of this meteorite in the late 1700’s. Most Pallasite is composed of a 50 percent nickel and iron alloy, but the other 50 percent is what makes it truly unique! Unlike other types of meteorite, Pallasite contains naturally occurring Olivine crystals. These crystals get the name Olivine from their yellow/green hue and very similar to the semi-precious stone Peridot. These crystals became imbedded in the metal of the meteorite as it formed.
