No, I didn't recommend
The sample sent bears no resemblance to the item pictured on the website and does not even have the same country of origin. The sample sent has NO olivine at all, it is a metal only section. The material is Russian material and not from Brazil as listed on the website. Does show excellent Widmanstätten pattern though.

Pallasite (Polished)
Specimens Mineral Specimens Meteorites
One of the rarest and most beautiful meteorites, these sliced and polished specimens contain transparent to translucent crystals of olivine (peridot) in a shiny nickel-iron matrix. Pallasites are believed to have formed on differentiated bodies in the transition area between the metal-rich core and the olivine-rich mantle. Samples average 3/4" x 1" x 1/16" (4—6 grams). Stock limited. Brazil.
