Meteorite Slice

Location: Sweden
Size: H18cm W26cm

These meteorites are composed primarily of various alloys of iron and nickel, and are derived from molten planetary cores that were broken apart billions of years ago. The large metallic crystals characteristic of meteorites require literally millions of years of cooling to form from a molten planetary core fragment. It has been estimated that it took about 1000 years for these molten pieces of planetary core to cool by just 1 degree celsius. This meterorite specimen is available to view at our Pimlico Road, London gallery.
