PALLASITES

There's not a one of us who hasn't gazed towards the stars and marveled at the sheer beauty and biggness of the night sky.  Well, sometimes the universe up and tosses some of that beauty right at us.

These are pallasites, a collection of transparent gems found in a precious 1 percent of all meteorites that hit the Earth.  They are made up of about 50% olivine (peridot), 50% nickel-iron and 100% breathtaking beauty. These awesome treasures are thought to be relics of forming planets.

Personally, I think they look like stain glass windows.  Probability when some outer space church to Xenu was blown up.
