It Looks like an LL3 to me . I have seen a number of this type. I have about 500gs maybe more that are very similar including an inclusion that looks like a Eucrite . I think that is what you have with yours . It has a great look !!!

Jesper, chondrule size gradually increases from H to L and to LL. The size you mention and the sparse FeNi may make it an LL chondrite!

Thanks Bernd. Most chondrules are *1-2 mm but some are 4-6 mm. I thought of L3 because of the sparse metal and abundant nice round chondrules, but I am no expert.

Hello Jesper, no, the white area doesn't really look like a typical CAI. Not sure, maybe it's plagioclase. By the way, what's the average chondrule size? L-chondrites usually have a larger chondrule diameter than H-chondrites.

Thanks Stephen, I am a relatively new member of IMCA, so all comments on this stone are very welcome. I sliced it a few days ago. Could it be a L3 chondrite? The light area don*t really look like a CAI * do it?

The other thing that is really interesting is that baby seems to be loaded with vesicles.
