Matija, This was featured on a "Meteorite Men" Television episode a few years ago. Steve Arnold (one of the meteorite men on the show) actually melted the metal away with acid. As I recall he soaked the meteorite in a huge vat of acid. Not sure how that went but it seemed to go well enough that he was having the material cut and polished as Gems from space. I think it was also done by Dana and Keith of KD meteorites.
