Strange rock or meteorite


Recommended Posts

I can't say this was anything but a strange rock until I looked a little closer. I noticed round nodule shapes within a clast. When I sanded it down (SEE 4th pic) I noticed the entire rock is some combo of breccia and round nodules for lack of knowing what to call them. Are theses chondrites or oolites or some sort of impact breccia or just a strange rock?

i appreciate your thoughts.

Hi Metworks,

       The rounded shapes in your fourth photo, don't look like chondrules

to me.  Chondrules are noticeably spherical.  Nice breccia.
