Hi Mike,

that looks really unusual and interesting.
But I can see no chondrules.
I think there was a hole in the iron (rendered troilite - similar Mundrabilla).
In this hole, then sand and sediment has been deposited.
After the cutting of the iron, it looks like an inclusion.
But this is only a guess.

Best regards Mirko
