23.7 grams.   L3.3

TKW 972 grams. Fall not observed. Found 2000.

From the MetBul:
Highly unequilibrated (<3.3). Highy unequilibrated chondrite with well-defined chondrules and some contain zoned olivine. Its matrix contains fine blades and laths of Fe-rich olivine and is very similar to Krymka (L3.1) matrix. These characteristics suggest that is L ≤3.3.

I have to admit that although I have seen and handled my collection for years, it is sometimes not until I see one of Paul's photographs of them that I appreciate the true beauty!

Hi Twink and all, This looks much like Ragland with the detailed chondrules. Simply beautiful and a great piece from the NWA region for sure.
