Lot 82 | AN UPRIGHT DRONINO METEORITE
This upright meteorite features a coarse rugged texture with distinctive formations. This furrowed surface, as well as the meteorite’s distinctive morphology, are the result of terrestrialization (exposure to Earth’s elements) and the atypical nickel-rich composition of the meteorite. A pewter to platinum patina envelops the meteorite’s surface.
93/4 x 41/2 x 31/4in. (24.5 x 11.5 x 8cm.)
12in. (30cm.) high on stand
