Thank you Michael for the story, (sorry for the milk). Also I am told that this is the last full slice, everything else has been chopped up. Sad.

Daule is an amazing meteorite I found absolutely by chance. On YouTube of all places. There was a fake airplane contrail fireball being reported in Ecuador. I was googling and search news stories to work on it and amazingly found a new story saying the new one was fake unlike the *real meteorites which fell last week in Daule*. Amazingly there was video of an Ecuadorian astronaught palying with a large meteorite which had fallen a week before and been recovered. I about spewed milk out of my nose! A week later had this gorgeous rock in my hands. Hans Koser whet to Ecuador and was able to locate this one.

Yes, interesting, very dark inside - shock-darkened => S4! Photo no. 3 is absolutely beautiful. Chondrule boundaries are distinct. Not an L6 but an L5 according to the Met.Bull. entry.
