You get a similar effect with some NWA 869's, tiny pits all over the
surface, - possibly weathered out surface chondrules or some sort of
weathered flight effect, perhaps where chonrules evaporated in flight
and secondary fusion crust formed over the surface?

Just received what looks like an ordinary chondrite, but the weird thing
that it is loaded with holes in the surface. The 37g piece has 6 sides
which every one has some type of hole. They are quite prolific
the whole stone and vary widely in size. I've created a quick page at
address below if anyone is interested in taking a look. I will probably
slice it at some stage to check out the interior and will post more
at that stage. I'd be interested in hearing any comments or theories on
one as this is the first meteorite I've personally seen with so many
