Probable Ureilite.

I see there the sun setting behind dark stormy clouds.

Thank you everybody, I am glad I am not the only one to see things in thin-sections. ;-) But John Kashuba should really get most of the credit, since he took that picture.

ureilites are one of the best types to purchase/see in thin section. if starting a TS collection...a collector should get one of these early on for big crystal textures. BTW, I see tree shadows on the lake too...farm out!

... and the crystals rimmed by carbon-rich material adds to this ambiance!
