    year: 2008 total weight: 499.5 kg

    Meteorites are rarer than gold on the earth’s surface and only very few of them are Pallasites – a unique structure of metal and gemstone. They come from the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter and the material is 4.60 billion years old and part of the transition zone between the mantle and the core of an asteroid. The first one was discovered in 1749 at Krasnojarsk/Russia and described by Peter Simon Pallas, a German scientist. Consequently, the meteorite group was named Pallasites in honor of him. Over the last centuries only 36 pieces of the Main Group have been found, half of them are less than 20 kg. With reference to his weight Jepara is the fifth largest Main Group Pallasite.

    History: The meteorite was discovered in May 2008 during excavation activities at  Jepara/Indonesia. A new hall for producing furniture had been under construction and Jepara has been dug out while building the foundation of this premises.

    Physical characteristics: The mass of the meteorite was 499.5 kg in an almost spherical shape with a shortest and longest diameter of  27.5 inch (70cm) and  33.5 inch (85cm). The crust of approximately 1 to 1.5 inch (2 - 4cm) is weathered and rusty.
