I was slicing up a 2.5 kg Ghubara this past weekend and found lots of great
features in this meteorite. Within several slices, I had a very distinct
differentiation ie. two adjoining sections that were distinctly different
colors. The lighter colored section also seemed to have more defined
chondrules. There were also dense clusters of metal flake up to 1/2 "
diameter, many armored chondrules and some large black inclusions about
1/4" diameter. All in all, it is one of the more diverse set of features
I've seen in a single meteorite.

I will post some pictures when I can.....any computer experts out there
that can help me get my scanner going again, please contact me (It won't
work after I "cleaned" out a virus).
