Pallasites are extremely rare even among meteorites. Represented by about 1% of all meteorites, they are by far the most alluring. These stellar gemstones are composed of about 50% olivine (peridot), 50% nickel-iron and 100% breathtaking beauty. These awesome treasures are thought to be relics of forming planets.
