Well-preserved gun-blue fusion crust and multiple flow line formed along its surface is a real beauty. I captured eleven images using camera, then focus stacked using helicon focus.

@Steve Brittenham // Wow, you've got the fact! I also used a Helicon Focus to get this crisp and nice images :) Thanks for your compliment!

I've used Helicon Focus for included amber photography and love the pseudo 3D model it generates. I never thought to do it with meteorites. Great job! Your pictures are really crisp, and it's a very nice specimen!!
