TKW 1375 grams. Fall not observed. Found 2004.

Now this is a textbook example of a CV3-type carbonaceous chondrite, very "busy", including up to cm-sized dark and lighter colored inclusions, CAIs, mineral fragments, and composed of large chondrules in a grayish matrix. I bought this slice (mass 50.277 g, scale cube is 1 cm size) way back in 2009, and it has been in one of my display cabinets ever since. You can learn quite a lot from itīs texture, thatīs why I like this goodie.

The dark area is devoid of chondrules, but you can see some very small brighter spots there which may be small mineral fragments.

That is undoubtedly one of the large inclusions...

What first caught my eye is the absolutely featureless area in the upper left corner which is totally devoid of chondrules!

Hi Alexander and all, Beautiful piece for sure. I like a busy matrix in specimens and this is an excellent example of a great meteorite. Best always!
