Official name: The name "Golden Pallasite" is not published in the Meteoritical Bulletin, and is a "common" name used in the meteorite community for this pallasite from Niger. This is specimen is technically an unclassified meteorite.
Description: The Golden Pallasite is arguably one the most beautiful and sought after pallasites available on the market today. With large golden olivine crystals embedded in its' sulfur enriched iron-nickel matrix, the Golden Pallasite is a wonder of nature. Its name is not actually derived from the honey colored olivine crystals, but rather metal sulfides in the matrix, similar to pyrite, that can cause large areas of the exterior to have the appearance of a high polished golden sculpture. The best of these specimens can be exceptionally stunning!
With solid metal matrices forged in the cores of large differentiated planetary bodies liberated through cataclysmic collisions and mixed with prismatic olivine and pyroxene crystals, pallasites are among the most beautiful of all the meteorites.
