Yes, You have right, but from the other side we can buy verry nice slices of
material similar to oryginal pallasites.
Nice, I mean: big slices, not rusting, thin to 2-3 mm, with min. 50%
transparent olivines. Try to find this quality pallasite in this price . You
can buy similar Imilac, Esquel, but how much You must pay for them ? Also
for example on eBay price of Brahin was destroyed and people pay arounf
1$/g, so when You put there transparent slice, they can pay much more per
Ofcourse its verry bad that this was sell as meteorite and sometimes in
crazy prices (20euro/gram on Ensisheim), but in my opinion this can be still
sell but as not meteorite and for price adequate to its origin.
