Can anyone please specify what kind of chondrule photo #4 shows?! It's got an igneous rim but the interior does not fit into any of the categories I can think of! Thank you in advance!

Quite a nice picture! I really enjoy these. I hope to get my polarizing microscope set up ao I can go through my thin sections. Thanks for sharing, this one is spectacular!

The MetBul does list it as "provisional" but I went with the information at the link to Meteorites Australia.

The Meteoritical Bulletin lists this as provisional with unknown classification, is this correct?
