8.3g Brahin Pallasite(PMG) Meteorite ***Etched and Polished Sides***

Up for auction is an awesome 8.3g slice of the Brahin Pallasite. The meteorite was found 1810 by Anja Fe dosenko on an arable field, at the edge of a small bog in Bragin, Russia.

What makes this slice so even cooler is that it has an etched side to show the beatiful crystalline structure, but it also has a polished side.. you decide!!
