What is a thin section?       What do all the colors mean?    
Thin section between crossed polarizers.   L3

TKW 1584 grams. Fall not observed. Found 2006, Algeria.

Don't miss the zoomable hi-res picture on Krpano.

A cool looking L3 chondrite without much description in the bulletin. It does make a nice photography target and the images I took turned out surprisingly well. The scattered black inclusions are especially worth exploring.

It seems that there is also a BO spherical chondrule(Figure 2).

Well, there seems to be a furnace strip like olivine pellet inside.

Yes, a very interesting L3 (L3.5?) chondrite. 5 specimens + 3 thin sections in my collection!
