A very thin slice (see photo 3) of a fascinating ureilite. Photo 2 reminds me of a starry night in the countryside.

amazing thin cut for a Ureilite. this one if paired to NWA 2624 is somewhat rare in that it is bi-modal (varying mineral type/sizes) and has a significant reduction level, R3. As Bernd mentioned, in x-pol we would also see sawtooth edges for the olivine and pyroxene for a R3.
