Sikhote Mountains Alin, Russia

Main Mineral/ Name Meteorite: Meteorito SIKHOTE ALIN (Russia, 1947).
Mineral Form/ Type Meteorite: Oriented. With flow lines!
Supplement: Individual
Weight: 57.8 g
Origin (Region/ City): Sikhote Mountains Alin
Origin (Country): Russia

On 12th February 1947 an asteroid of metallic nature went through the Earth's atmosphere, creating the largest rain of meteorites known in recent decades. Sikhote-Alin meteorites are considered the ‘Iron Maiden’, since they tend to be pieces of great beauty, full of regmaglypts or flow lines.

Traces on the meteorites from this meteorite fall tend to be very beautiful, and they look like marks that fingers would have left in a block of clay by pressing it. The flow lines, on the other hand, are a kind of fine metal ‘wires’ visible in some areas, as a result of the metal melted during the entry of the meteorite through the atmosphere of our planet.

One of the people who witnessed this fall was the Soviet painter artist P. I. Medvedev, who was sitting at his window starting a sketch when a fire ball appeared, so he immediately began to draw what he saw. This painting was used in commemorative stamps of the fall of the famous meteorite Sikhote-Alin.

The specimen in this lot has the classic features of this meteorite: flow lines o high quality marks. Exceptional quality and a good size for a great collection.
