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. World renown as the most spectacular example of natural cosmic splendor,
the Fukang pallasite will undoubtedly become one of the greatest meteorite
discoveries of the 21st century. 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. Its 36 x 19-inch polished face provides a window into
its wondrous mosaic of extraterrestrial crystals, and to our knowledge, it
displays the largest cross section of this kind of material on earth.

That is pretty awesome and the cut and polished pieces are really beautiful.
