There is someone selling faceted gemstones they claim to have cut from pallasites. ?I looked through their current and past offerings, and I have never seen such a rainbow of colors; AFAIK, olivine doesn't come in red and blue! ?Anyone know anything about this seller? or is he just trying to cash in on meteorite lust?
Incidentally, I asked if he knew what pallasite this offering had been?cut from and he didn't know. ?It's a bigger than usual chunk of peridot, for a meteorite (if that's what it is).
