Parnallee has to be one of my all-time favorites. I picked up this nice full slice in Tucson last week.

Graham, I'm so glad you asked that question because I was thinking to ask the same earlier in my post but then thought maybe it was a little bit of iron but it looks almost matte white rather than lustrous. Can't wait to hear what the verdict is.

Good one!...question...have they ever found CAIs in Parnallee?...I know they are found in unequilibriated chondrites sometimes...this looks like it could have some?
