A natural fragment of the Brenham meteorite.
Specimen Name: Brenham
Specimen Type: Pallasite
Location of Find: Kiowa County, Kansas, USA
Date of Find: 1882
In 1949, a collector named H.O. Stockwell discovered a mass of 450 kilograms (990 lb), known at the time as “The World’s Largest Pallasite Meteorite.”
In October 2005, geologist Philip Mani and meteorite hunter Steve Arnold located and recovered the largest fragment ever found of Brenham: a single pallasite mass of 650 kilograms (1,430 lb).
The meteorite comes in a small plastic casing with foam to protect each fragment. As well as a Specimen Identification Card for you to display at home. This is perfect as a gift!
Each of our Brenham fragments is similar to the one shown in the image, however no two fragments are identical.
