The application of X-ray microtomography to the sulphide rich main group pallasite Hambleton is dicussed as an attempt to further understand pallasite genesis. X-ray microtomography is an under utilized technique for the study of diverse samples such as pallasites. The three-dimensional textures observed in Hambleton may be explained by introduction of a large sulphide volume under pressure into a metal-olivine mixture with metal approaching solidus temperature.
