The Seymchan pallasite meteorite was discovered in June of 1967 in a dry brook-bed flowed into the river of Hekandue, a left tributary of the river of Jasachnaja of the Magadan district in Russia.
Following the discovery of the initial mass during a geological survey, additional masses (including those with olivine crystals) were subsequently found using mine detectors available at the time (amid the ongoing Cold War).
This specimen is thin and has extremely translucent olivine crystals!
