Thank you, glad you like it. It is hard to tell because it is so black but the face to the left, that looks striated, is really all crusted. Any suggestions, ideas regarding this odd clast?

Observed fall of rare class CM2, an obviously fresh and relatively big fragment, typical deep black matrix with tiny chondrules and CAIs like stars in deep black space. Interesting in the "anterior corner" the zone of increased chondrule density. Very special and beautiful - thank you, Anne.

What an incredible, historic meteorite. The great Michael Faraday himself performed the chemical analysis, and noted, using the newly developed mixed gas blowpipe to achieve a higher temperature, that the meteorite melted into a viscous black liquid that solidified into a solid, opaque globule.
