Great meteorite Anne! The slice does look good with the rough cut :) Cheers.

Glad you like it. I don't know what was used to cut it, but the other side is perfectly smooth. But this side shows the Huss number! As for a macro image! ...... Maybe if I had a thin-section of it.

Love the exotic E's. This slice looks like it was cut with a crude blade/method that makes for a very unique look. Thanks for sharing Anne.

Very nice achondrite "chondrite" :-) Would love to see a macro image showing the river of pretty enstatite crystals that are reported to make up the bulk of the composition from this representative of a perhaps hot and molten world.
