Sometime around 1951, a mass weighing 1,500 kilograms was found by a local citizen. Esquel is one of the prettiest of the pallasites with large lime-green crystals. Scientists believe that pallasites formed when the molten metal core of a planet mixed with the silicate magma. The olivine crystallized out of the silicate as it cooled, and was then forced into the metal "mold" where the mass was solidified.
