Imilac Pallasite Meteorite 

Pallasite meteorites are the rarest of all types and consist of

Iron and translucent crystalline Olivine (Peridot) that are theorized to have originated at the Core Mantle boundary of protoplanets destroyed during the formation of our solar system 4.6 billion years ago.

It was initially found in 1822 in the Atacama Desert of Chile.  
One of the Big Three stable Pallasite meteorites, many quickly rust away due to the nature of their non-terrestrial iron. The stability and stunning translucent Olivine makes Imilac among the most sought-after meteorites among collectors.

Primary minerals: Quartz

Secondary minerals: Minor Calcite

Dimensions: 3 cm tall, 1 cm wide

Location: Jeffrey Quarry, Jeffrey, Pulaski Co., Arkansas, USA

Details & Highlights: Rock Currier Collection No. 3818 

What appears to me a tether to the underworld is actually thread that connects to a small yellow circular specimen label, a signature identifier of many smaller pieces in the Rock H. Currier Collection. It makes an occasional facet pop yellow at the right angle. I enjoy this expression of the simultaneity of presence and absence, a tribute to the extended influence of work done well on future people that may never have had the opportunity to know its initial creator. People like Rock H. Currier, R.A. (Allan Lang) Langheinrich and K.C. Pandey who found ways to embrace their love for rocks, minerals and fossils and share their life's work with the world.
