Analysis should be in shortly but until then, does anyone have any good guesses as to what this might be? I’ve been trying to figure it out since I found it in April and nothing seems to compare. A big slice revealed different looking litholigies with scarce peculiar white specs that I believe to be CAI’s. I did the acid test with vinegar to confirm they weren’t calcite. Window looks brecciated but hard to see many chondrules unless under magnification. The metal seems to be in matrix form and not nickle iron flakes. Many different chondrule textures too. I spotted 1 bleached chondrule which says it had an aqueous history (I think?) My guess is a CO3 but that’s only because I’m hoping it is 😆

Except for all the metal it looks more like a  chondrite meteorite ?.

Bob, his guess of CO3 is a chondrite. :)

Looks like some sort of type 3 chondrite, but that's as much as my guessing hat will tell me.  Let us know the lab results when they're in!

I knew it was a chondrite but because the photos looked so different I wasn't going any further on it.
I was kidding. :D
