Dirk writes:
From the MetBul: The interior contains many dark and light colored clasts (mostly 1-5mm across), including prominent yellow-green diogenite clasts (up to 14mm across), in a light gray matrix. Breccia composed of mineral fragments of orthopyroxene, calcic plagioclase, exsolved pigeonite, silica polymorph, ilmenite, chromite and troilite, plus diogenite clasts (composed of orthopyroxene with accessory chromite).

This is a beautiful howardite. My 20.6 gr slice features a prominent eucritic clast (11 x 9 mm).

Add ingredients, mix well, stir gently every Eon or so and let set. I would love to XPOL scope a TS of this one. Any loaners? Thanks Dirk.
