Photo 4 reminded me of the battle between Kirk and the Gorn in the original Star Trek episode, Arena! What is the field of view length in the main pic?

NWA 2224...this "likely" CV3 doesn't give up its' CAI's very easily, but the awesome zoomable hi-res photo makes them obvious...they are all small in this particular section.

Love the porphyritic chondrule in photo no.2 and the deformed BO chondrule enveloped by a porphyritic one in photo no.4!
