TKW 222 grams. Fall not observed. Purchased April 2014 from a Moroccan dealer.

Here's an endcut of the NWA 8417 LL7 chondrite. The interior is pale green, there are some visible FeNi specks, some areas show brown stains. On the right you can see a large oikocryst (the enclosing crystal in poikilitic fabric) of orthopyroxene (9 x 7 mm), a smaller one can be seen in the 11 o'clock position. Chondrules are absent. Interesting feature: triple junctions.
