An LL4 chondrite that looks more like an LL3 than an LL4 chondrite because it features a multitude of closely packed, mostly small, oval chondrules (and chondrule fragments) but also some quite large ones.

I purchased this Hot Desert beauty from Greg Hupé in 2004.

I especially like chondrites with a dark matrix, because the variety of the chondrules can be clearly seen even with the naked eye.
