Seymchan is a rare type of meteorite called a pallasite. These specimens are from Seymchan, located in the Magadan district of far eastern Russia. A pallasite is a special type of meteorite, it is both metal and stone, often the stone part contains peridot or olivine. These are extremely rare and are sought after by collectors. Not all Seymchan meteorites contain olivine, but all are rare and very collectible.
Seymchan was originally found in 1967, and because the specimen found had no olivine it was classified as a rare iron. More recent analysis has determined that it is actually a very rare ungrouped iron. A recent expedition has recovered several more specimens including some that contain olivine crystals making this a pallasite. The specimens are from one of these recent finds and contain olivine crystals and some will also have Windmanstatten patterns. It has been studied extensively by many Universities and may also be found in several museum collections.
