maybe so Bernd but I had over a kilo of NWA 904, cut quite a few slices and for the longest time I thought it was different from NWA 904. After time of studying both for many years I feel they are from the same fall...one opinion only. I made thin sections of both too. who knows?? :)

Hi John, my 111.1 gr endpiece of NWA 869 was the MPOD for 2/28/2018. Among some other details I wrote that the finely disseminated metal flakes [in NWA 869] are much smaller than in NWA 904, an 869 look-alike.

NWA 904 ...once dubbed the "meteorite collection in a slice" with supposed achondrite and carbonaceous inclusions. Reality is that it is a different version of NWA 869 that had some really interesting aspects to some of the slices made from a larger specimen. This nice L5 is likely NWA 869 with a classification of L3-6.
