Natural History - Seymchan Meteorite

A highly polished triangular section of the Seymchan meteorite with a number of olivine inclusions. 34 grams, 50mm (2"). Fine condition. [No Reserve]

Provenance
Property of a London collector; acquired on the European meteorite market.

Literature
Cf. Graham, A.L., Bevan, A.W.R. & Hutchison, R. Catalogue of Meteorites, London, 1985, p.323; report of geologist F. A. Mednikov (Magadan, USSR) in a letter, VIII 15, 1967 and of V. 1. Zvetkov (Moscow, USSR) in a letter X 17, 1967; Meteoritical Bulletin No. 43, Moscow (1968) and database.

Footnotes
Seymchan belongs to Main Group pallasites but it is considered anomalous due to its high Iridium content. Before the discovery of its pallasitic structure it had been classified as IIE anomalous coarse octahedrite. Seymchan is considered a stable and rust-resistant pallasite.
