The Zapaliname meteorite was descovered in 1998 while prospecting in the Zapaliname Mountains, Mexico. A single mass of 85 kg was found. It is classified as an iron IAB-MG meteorite. It is an iron meteorite and hence it probably comes from the core of asteroids that were destroyed by impacts with other bodies. It is an alloy of iron-nickel mainly although it contains other trace elements.
