SIKHOTE-ALIN, Russia - Witnessed Fall

The meteorite shower of 12 February 1947, in the Maritime Province, Maritime Province, Siberia, Russia, is considered the largest single meteorite fall in historical times. Literally thousands of these specimens have appeared on the meteorite market during the past several years, and  Sikhote-Alin individuals are considered by most people to be the epitome of an iron meteorite. Sikhote-Alin is a Coarsest Octahedrite, IIB. Offered here are several examples (both individuals and shrapnel) of this fall. You will be quite pleased with the quality of these specimens.
