Anne's 10-6-2013 photo of a 9200 gram Seymchan (all iron) slice is similar in size and look. Both big!

Bernd, it could be a question of scale. I have seen slices of Seymchan that were easily 2feet (60cm) across. And yes Stephen, Seymchan is transitional, some iron, some pallasite.

Hello Stephen. As far as I can tell the Widmanstaetten pattern of Seymchan is coarser. So, like you, I am not sure this is really a Seymchan slice.

Ah I didn't realize that some portions didn't contain large olivine crystals. Sorry guys.

I know Seymchan is a pallasite but is that the correct picture??
