Specimen Type: Cross section of Iron Meteor
Major Elements: Iron
Image 1: Interior Cross-section

Meteorites are one of the few places you will find a crystalline form of Iron. When the meteor is formed, there are extremely high temperatures. When it flies through space... very cold. But then when it enters the Earth's atmosphere, it heats up again to several thousand degrees. When the iron in the core of the meteor cools and we cut it open, we can see the very fine crystals of pure iron.
