Brenham Pallasite

The Brenham pallasite was found in Brenham, Kiowa County, Kansas U.S.A. in 1882. Since that time, more than a ton of material has been recovered making Brenham the most available meteorite of the pallasite classification.

This photograph shows a 3kg+ Brenham endpiece. Due to the highly fractured nature of the olivine crystals, prepared slices should be a minimum of 5-6mm thick. Any prepared surface should be thoroughly flushed and stabilized to reduce oxides from developing under the crystals.
