Meteorites

Our meteorites are the Sikhote-Alin, from the Maritime Territory, Russia. They are a Nickel-Iron Meteorite.

On February 12, 1947, people in eastern Siberia witnessed the largest single meteorite fall. Over 23 tons of material showered the area. This meteorite displays regmaglypts, thumbprint-like depressions, and has ragged, twisted and distorted surfaces. This occurred because the meteorite broke up at a rather low altitude and was not subjected to the intense ablation that would have smoothed its surface.
