What is a thin section?       What do all the colors mean?    

TKW 12.6 kg. Observed fall 20 September 1950, in Calloway County, Kentucky, US.

John says "A 0.5mm diameter chondrule. Skeletal olivine(?) crystals in a partially devitrified mesostasis. Thin section in plane polarized light."

Thank you Graham, Thank you Bernd. Yes, this is a very unusual chondrule. I am glad John found it, and took this great picture.
