Summary: A metallographic study has been made of the macroscopic and microscopic features of the Brenham pallasite. The microprobe has been used to investigate the condition of kamacite interfaces with second kamacite grains, olivine, schreibersite, troilite, and taenite and of taenite interfaces with olivine. The results indicate that grain-boundary migration of nickel may be important in these structures.
