John writes:
I was lucky enough to buy it from Eric Olsen, and it has a great comma shape, an oriented piece of shrapnel if such a thing exists in descriptions. Features include the remaining cavity/depression from a large troilite nodule "pop-out". This specimen also has some obvious crystals exposed by fracture and a number of slickenside lines of the flat side of this specimen.
