Description

In 1924 a meteorite of 1084 grams was found in the Northern Territory of Australia. 13 years later the main mass of 1411 kg was recovered at Huckitta (22°22’S, 135°46’E). Over 900 kilograms (2,000 lb) of iron shale were also found.

It is a pallasite related to Main Group of pallasites. This pallasite is severely weathered: almost all of the metal is highly oxidized and transformed mainly into maghemite and goethite, and the olivine crystals are often altered. Sometimes it is called an anomalous Main Group pallasite due to its high Ge and Ga contents and lower Au content.
