Esquel

  
Esquel is known as the most highly stable of all Pallasites. When it is sliced extremely thin like the specimen below, it is highly translucent and very beautiful. Esquel, when properly prepared, never ceases to impress collectors and non-collectors alike.


Esquel was found in 1951 in Chubut, Argentina. A mass of 1500 kg was found imbedded in the soil.
