Get it tested from a very thins slice , Find out what it is first . Then decide what to do . Fantastic meteorite. I don't think it is a urelite but is very special . Test 1st before cutting !!!!

Maybe even angrite? Yes, I think there is a chance, so worth cutting.

Urelite was our first idea

Andi then you think it is worth cutting it?

Very magnetic? Strange. Always a problem to cut 20 percent for classification from a little beauty meteorite with less than 100g. But in this case I*d do it.

Yes, those bright green chromium-rich pyroxenes we see in Katol ... but if achondritic we are maybe looking at a diogenite - just think of Johnstown!

thanks Andi of your opinion, it is certainly a very intriguing specimen

I*d guess some kind of achondrite, not a chondrite. But since Katol and its apple green crystals, nobody knows...

thank you all it is one of my most beautiful oriented. I have often looked at it under a microscope, and all these crystals (especially the part behind the photo 5 and 6) are magnificent. I wonder what kind of meteorite is it?
