Chondrite. Breccia

Hundreds of people are searching for pieces and more are being found each day. This is a 399 gram fragment showing amazing shocked interior. One mass of ~40 kilograms has been found as well as about 8-10 kg of smaller stones. One smashed through a roof and landed on a bed. Another 2.8 kilogram oriented stone landed on top of the town bar in the plaza.

Yes very nice. And I agree Bernd, I don't see any chondrules, and no iron. Maybe an L6 ?
