nice slice of the Domeyko iron meteorite.
One mass of 13.88kg was found in the Atacama Desert in Chile in 2000.
Because of the high density of iron meteorites an iron meteorite mass of 13.8kg has just the size of a loaf of bread.
Etched to make visible the Widmanstätten pattern. The slice is showing also fine elongated Schreibersite inclusions known as Brezina lamellae.
