The second coin in the "Meteorite Art" series, this innovative silver coin features a huge meteorite inset embedded into a 2,5 mm high relief! With a bit of genuine Brenham Meteorite and its impact site image on the reverse, it’s a stunning coin and made of 170 g sterling silver with an antique finish.


Thousands of years ago, a meteor scattered several tons of meteorite fragments in the vicinity of Brenham, Kansas, United States. The fall must have been both frightening and spectacular - over 10 tons of these meteorites were scattered along a line-of-entry and created the largest pallasite "strewnfield" in the world, stretching over approximately seven miles in length and around a mile wide.


Arguably the most attractive type of meteorite, the pallasites have an internal structure of chrome-like metal imbedded with beautiful olivine stone. Slices of the meteorite often reveal translucent, see-through crystals ranging in colours from yellows, oranges and reds, to green, the equivalent of earth peridot, the August birthstone. Some of the Brenham meteorites are entirely iron-nickel metal, the polished interior looking like a mirror. Their striking size, shapes and internal structures are like nothing else seen on earth, making them truly unique, not only to Kansas but to the world.
