ahh...just another Lodranite. such a phrase was not even a thought twenty years ago when they were so rare. I/we have been and are in "lucky" times as meteorite researchers and collectors.

Beautiful green lodranite. In photos no. 4 and 5 you can clearly see the near 90* cleavages of the green pyroxenes. Tnanks for sharing this little beauty, John!
