if the nwa 3099 is being compared to the 200ish g piece of l/ll3 I bought
from Blain, i can pretty safely say there is no comparison. the stuff I got
from Blain looks totally diffrent in terms of matrix color, chondrules, and
exterior. the exterior of this stuff was typical well worn nwa desert rock.
the end cut of nwa3099 I saw photos of had very fresh crust.
