Description

Many grains of palladium from an new locality (at least for me). I bought this piece from a geologist who is dead, and i have not the analysis.
I have found some scientific study about "Platinum group minerals (PGM) in the Loma Peguera ophiolitic chromitite (Central Dominican Republic)" that tell about palladium and platinum minerals of this locality. No more information at the moment. I trusted this geologist. Now i offer this rare piece.
