Hello All,
I have an 11.5g square-cut Esquel part-slice for sale or trade.
It's an older, slightly thicker slice so the olivine actually looks
bright green, rather unlike the thinner slices that have been on the
market more recently which have better surface area but much less
colour. From what I can tell, *no* lacquer was used to restore the
olivine in this specimen - it looks to be completely original, even on
the corners. Sharp corners and edges, a perfect piece for
jewelry-making or for a collector looking for a prime example of a
pallasite. There's no rust, but it could use a light buffing to get
rid of minor surface things like fingerprints.
A fine specimen of a getting-harder-to-find meteorite.
