NOTE: Unfortunately, not all pallasites are the same quality. Some are very nice, stable high quality pieces and then there are those that have well developed reputations as "Rusters". The "Rusters" typically sell for only a buck or two a gram or less. Some specimens are so unstable that they can actually crumble into pieces. We avoid buying Brahin, Brenham and Admire pallasites. Fortunately there are a number of very stable and beautiful pallasites available. The high quality pallasites sell for about thirty times the amount of the "Rusters", but as common sense dictates, you get what you pay for! Imilac, Esquel and Seymchan are known for their stability and they command significantly higher prices than the "Rusters". If you are going to invest your hard earned money in a Pallasite we recommend investing in one that won't rust away!
Imilac strewn field was first discovered by Westerners in 1822, and is
located in the Atacama Desert of Chile. The Atacama is said to be
the second driest region in the world (antarctica being the driest), and
is extremely desolate, being located on the leeward side of Chile's coastal
mountain range. The rain gauge at Calama has reportedly never received
any measurable precipitation. The Atacama is a high desert with many regions
over 8000 feet in elevation. This makes it unlike many other deserts in
that it is a cold desert, with average temperatures ranging from 0°
to 25° Celsius (32° to 75° F). Click on the links below to see full sized photographs of the Imilacs that are currently available as well as prices.
