Imilac

For Sale

       Imilac was found in 1822 in the Atacama Desert of Northern Chile.  Imilac is classified as a stony-iron, Pallasite.  Pallasites are composed of olivine and iron/nickel and are thought to be from the core- mantle boundary of a body big enough to have melted.   The Olivine grains are completely enclosed by a continuous network of iron/nickel.  In the case of Imilac the olivine grains are weathered.  Only on large specimens (over 1 kilogram) are complete olivine grains found.  Smaller specimens are found as metal skeletons.   Only some of which have weathered remnants of olivine crystals such as these specimens.  Imilac has been hunted hard the last few years and very little is being found anymore and most of what has found recently are small pieces less than 5 grams.   This is a very nice batch of decent sized Imilac individuals below as well as some part slices..
