Stony-Iron Meteorites:

None of the families of meteorites is as visually interesting as the Stony Irons. The spectacular olivine and metal of pallasites is a treat for the eyes that never wanes. The inticate metal and mineral texture of the mesosiderites is unique to each specimen and worthy of long study. Whole specimens are shown though clearly with this family the most interesting part is how they look inside when sliced. Like the name states these will have metal and stone in roughly equal amounts.
