Michael writes:
This meteorite has two levels of fusion crust. This meteor evidently fractured while still surrounded with plasma, and the exposed fractured areas starts melting, but for a shorter period, showing a glossing and edge softening, but not a full burn like the original surface. The original surface also shows some shallow regmaglypts. The broken areas of the fusion crust display the light color of the body of the meteorite.

Yes, Michael clear signs of a primary and a secondary fusion crust. Beautiful specimen!
