This is an absolutely beautiful LL6 chondrite--perhaps the most attractive on the market at this time!  A single 194 gram stone inwas acquired in 2014 and submitted it for analysis towards classification.  The results from Dr. Anthony Irving of the University of Washington's Department of Earth and Space Sciences are as follows:

Petrography: Breccia composed of different types of equilibrated L chondrite clasts (some with more evident chondrules than others). Olivine, orthopyroxene, clinopyroxene, sodic plagioclase, chromite, altered kamacite and troilite.

Petrography: (A. Irving and S. Kuehner, UWS) Mostly recrystallized with some relatively large chondrule remnants.

 

GeochemistryOlivine (Fa31.3-31.7, N = 3), orthopyroxene (Fs25.2-25.3Wo1.9-1.6, N = 2), clinopyroxene (Fs9.8-10.1Wo44.0-43.8, N = 2).
