"Poorly lit" is the operative phrase for the entire exhibit. This picture was taken without a flash, which increased the exposure time, so there is blurring because of camera shake. The metal flecks are visible only at certain viewing angles none of which were conducive to picture-taking. Over the years I've made 3 visits to the AMNH to photograph meteorites and the results were uniformly disappointing, primarily because of the lousy lighting. So, after tripping over this rock 3 times I finally have it figured out - enjoy the mood lighting and leave the camera home :)

Kenneth- having viewed this in person at the AMNH, I can tell you it is a large and thick slice. Inability to view certain features, particularly metal flecks, can likely be attributed to the way light from the camera flash hit the specimen. Unfortunately, this display is not well lit and poorly suited to photography.

Nice but for a H4 I see no metal or chondrules . How big is the specimen maybe 10 mm ? Thanks for the look !!

Nice shot. It's interesting to think that South Dakota had only existed as a state for 3 years when this fall took place.
