"Any chance you can elaborate on who is "they"
and if the fake pallasite you are alluding to is
Shirokovsky?"

By the way, is anyone selling pieces of the Shirokovsky
Psuedopallastite?

The only fragment that could find for sale is at
"Shirokovsky Pallasite 1,16 gms" at http://tiny.cc/SchirokovskyPallasite and
http://tiny.cc/ShirokovskyPallasite2 or
http://www.online-schmuck.biz/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=638&osCsid=02c4a2d3b6f48098f34f2a18b1d096c7

where the seller is still under the delusion that it
is a real meteorite.

Even though it is a fake, it seems like would be fun to have
a piece in one's collections given the way "mimics" a type
of meteorite that normally lacks any meteorwrongs that can
be mistaken for it.

Yours,
