The Admire pallasite contains olivine crystals which posses a unique and extremely rare characteristic called chatoyancy. Chatoyancy is a changeable luster due to the way it reflects light  within a gemstone. This character is caused by either a fiberous mineral inclusion or tiny void tubes in the gemstone. When the gemstone is cut parallel to the fibers or tubes,  they reflect very bright light. The olivines within the Admire pallasite meteorite contain void tubes which appear like fiber  optics when a certain angle of light strikes them. It is amazing to hold these Admire slices in low light and watch them "wink" at you!  This character is extremely rare in both terrestrial and celestial olivines and very collectable.
