One of my top favorite chondrites. Visually stunning meteorite.

Among other things, Moorabie is "anomalous" because its silicates are highly reduced and because its bulk iron lies in the region where L/LL chondrites overlap.

Wonderful and big partslice of a rare meteorite - rare by TKW, and rare as well - if not unique - by classification. Very fine piece, J*rgen.
