Great pictures, Hanno! @Holger. I can confirm, that my two Krasnojask fragments (124g + 22g) have no plastic deformation due to chopping-off from the mainmass. I agree with your thought that all or most of all fragments are Imilac-like. This goes in line with what we have talking about during my visit in Kobenhavn last year. If yes, than there should be more hidden in the ground, waiting for discovery. It might be a good opportunity for experienced metal detector searchers to proof (and to find) more of the smaller Krasnojarsk fragments. But where is the exact location to search???

a lot of photos of this meteorite is of skeletal-type specimens to one degree or another. Even this big one is a skeletal remain of something bigger.

The engraving is a mirror inverted version of the original engraving published in Saint Petersburg in 1776. Eventually see my book published a year ago. The samoyedes are irrelevant to the meteorite history (chance combination in copper-engravers shop). The big question is: are all the Pallas Iron fragments, kept in collections around the world, truly chopped off the main mass?? Or is the fall Imilac-like ??
