Bernd writes:
Ted Bunch says this CV carbonaceous chondrite is paired with NWA 3118. The 11.63 gr specimen is an endcut with two prominent features: a white CAI (upper right) and an oval, featureless inclusion devoid of chondrules.

The 4.82 gr specimen is an encut too. It features a large, white CAI in the 11 o'clock position and another featureless inclusion in the 7 - 9 o'clock position.

The 3.22 gr specimen is a slice. It,too, shows a large CAI and a relatively large chondrule on the opposite side in the 3 o'clock position.

All three specimens show a high chondrule density.
