great looking chondrite, and the L3.5 to L5 classification fits the brecciated look. I always liked the look of this American find.

Very Nice!!! It appears as if its composed of three different lithologies unless I'm mistaking about the small dark section in the top right hand corner, to top it off its a wonderful size slice allowing you to really inspect it all.
