Abu Moharek has tiny vugs too, they look like pin pricks. And then there is Albion.

Alfredo, the Sahara 99555 angrite is another example of "vesicular". It has perfect mm-sized vesicles in a green / grey matrix.

Impact or volcanic? Less filling!

Awesome specimen! As to your question Alfredo, D'Orbigny (angrite) also has open vugs.

Ibitira is the only meteorite I know of that has open vugs, which makes it really interesting from a mineralogical point of view. Anyone know of other examples of meteorites with vugs? Cheers, Alfredo

Vesicular beauty with a gorgeous, glossy fusion crust!
