Iron Meteorites

Iron Meteorites:

Made of nearly solid nickel iron the Iron Meteorites are a smaller and rarer group of meteorites then the stone group. Shown in this gallery are images of slices, whole individuals, and some which have spectacular surface features. Some specimens have been cleaned and some have not. Many have been cut, polished and etched with acid to reveal their crystalline pattern. Some are nearly as found with just the dirt and some of the flakey deposits removed. Enjoy the diversity that is shown in this range of Iron Meteorite images.
