Even though the iron of this ancient meteorite has changed, due to its millions of years of exposure on earth, into meteorite shale it still shows you the beautiful pallasite structure it is famous for and also reacts still very strong to the magnet.
A piece of un-altered Huckitta iron is extremely rare. Not even the Northern Territory Museum owns one. It has got only a small slice on display in Alice Springs, This is on loan from the S.A. Museum in Adelaide.
