Brenham was first recognized as a meteorite in 1882 by F.W. Cragen of Washburn University in Kansas. Since that time over 6 tons has bee recovered from Kiowa County Kansas. Pallasites are thought to originate in the boundary between the core and the mantle of large asteroids. They are considered to be the most attractive of all the meteorites, being composed of olivine and peridot crystals embedded in a iron/nickel matrix. Although olivine itself is not considered to be a gemstone and has a history that extends back over 4000 years. Peridot. is mentioned in the bible and was referred to in ancient time as "evening emerald", and was reported to be the favorite gemstone of Cleopatra. Although olivine, typically yellow to orange in color, is common in the Brenham pallasite, the green peridot crystals are more rare, and more collectible.
