5,516 grams.   Iron, ungrouped

TKW 6.43 kg. Fall not observed. Found 6 June 2017, Xinjiang, China.


Ziyao writes:
Ungrouped, finest octahedrite. Although high Ni and Ir are suggestive of the IVB group, other element concentrations fall outside of known ranges for IVB irons.

impressive find Ziyao... that one is more like the "finest" octahedrite :/

I think photo #5 shows two former austenite crystals. The crystal boundary is clearly visible and the patterns show different orientation.

Glad I can be the first comment. Jeminay is an awesome new Chinese meteorite! Very very fine and unusual Widmanstatten pattern.

Interesting iron find with an utmost dense, manifold and rich Widmannstaetten pattern. Thank you for sharing, Ziyao.
