That's a slice of a meteor? Unbelievable.
 
*Fukang Pallasite*

No Really. That's what this totally beautiful Meteorite is called.

"Of all the rarities on Earth the most eye-catching and unique are pallasites. These extra-terrestrial gemstones mirror the stellar beauty of the cosmos. The Fukang Pallasite is a specimen that clearly out shines all meteorites of its class.

The Fukang pallasite displays celestial yellow-green olivine crystals in an illustrious nickel-iron matrix. Backlit slices from the Fukang mass are reminiscent of stained glass windows crafted in the ancient solar system."

So beautiful! :)
