Has anyone cut and polished the Niger finds to see how nice of Pallasite it is? Is it Sericho-like or less, or better...like towards an Imilac level? As for stable/problematic or not, can that be determined by looking at it from the outside, or if NICE when looking at the inside with a cut ? Some Fukang slices looked beautiful when first offered, then some for sure quickly fell apart.

Looks like this one could even have some remnant crust which would be remarkable!....like some recent Imilac finds...however this looks pretty unstable so would take very good care of it. Needs a very dry inert environment if it is to survive methinks....or some preservation techniques.
