Our specimens of Admire are finely prepared polished slices that show the olivine crystals in a wonderful way. Many of the slices have been cut so that the yellow color of the extraterrestrial olivine can be seen when the specimens are backlit. The olivine in pallasites is the same mineral as the gemstone Peridot but these peridot are special they are not from the Earth.
