Esquel

A slice of the Esquel meteorite. This type of meteorite is from the core-mantle boundary of an ancient planetoid that was smacked apart billions of years ago. The metal is iron/nickle core material and the crystals are peridot from the mantle area. At the interface, they mix together as you can see. This piece is from my collection.
