* The Seymchan Meteorite was originally found in 1967 in the dry riverbed of the Hekandue River in the Magadan region of Russia. The Seymchan Meteorite is considered stable and rust resistant. This meteorite is considered rare due to its structure and composition (Pallasite, containing Olivine crystals) and to further contribute to its rarity it also has a seldom seen feature on iron meteorites, a Widmanstatten pattern.
