What is a thin section?    What do all the pretty colors mean?    

TKW 1070 grams. Fall not observed. Found 30 April 2016, Kerman, Iran.

Unusual chondrula in chondrite Gandom Beryan 002 (Iran).

The meteorite was found by Timur Kryachko, during the Iranian-Russian expedition to Iran, 2016 Apr 30. The transparent polished section was made by Timur Kryachko. The photo was obtained on a MPD-1 microscope, with 9x, 3.5x, 20x objectives (three images in crossed polarization light, and one in the transmitted light). This chondra consists of orthopyroxene, with an anomalous, for this meteorite, Fs = 22. The content of Al2O3 is 2 - 2.5%!

may not be a sign of Life but possibly of chondrule intelligence with its' brainy look.

Yes, yes, but there is no real relief, the surface of the chondra in the section is absolutely flat!

Weird-looking but interesting orthopyroxene chondrule... as if the pyroxenes had been "inflated"... almost three-dimensional!
