Stony Iron Meteorites for Sale

A Stony Iron Meteorite is defined as being about equal parts of iron and silicate minerals (the stony part). Most stony iron meteorites can be classified as either Pallasites or Mesosiderites. This classification is more historical than genetic. Stony Irons can have very different origins.

Pallasites are rocks that originated at the boundary between the iron core of an asteroid and its stone crust or mantle. Similar rocks may exist at the boundary of the Earth's crust and mantle, about 3480 km (2000 miles) below your feet. Needless-to-say, the only place mere mortals can obtain such rocks is from space. It is fitting that they are among the most beautiful rocks on Earth.

Mesosiderites are mixtures of iron and stony material in a breccia. These are belived to come from one asteroid with a very complex history and morphology.  Mesosiderites reflect the collisional and melting events of the mesosiderite parent body.
