Hi list,

I recently acquired a 31g piece of NWA 353, and I was thinking that this
piece might be an impact-melt breccia similar to the L5 Rio Limay, Argentina
on pg 98 of the The Cambridge Encyclopedia of Meteorites Fig. 5.18. I think
my meteorite is similar because it has 2 distinct fields, in the picture, one
with chondrules(lighter area) and the other area lacking chondritic
texture(dark area). Any feedback, negative or positive, on my meteorite would
be greately appreciated.
