The Imilac meteorite was found in 1822 in the Atacama Desert, in northern Chile. Many large masses were found by prospectors, and thousands of small fragments have been found since. Imilac is a beautiful stable pallasite, with nice golden-to-green olivine crystals.

I made an expedition to the Imilac strewnfield in April of 1999. I found 1.5 kilos of small specimens myself. Meteorite hunters have successfully searched the area in recent years using large machines to scour the desert.
