Greetings listoids and listettes,

I just acquired a new specimen of NWA 8184 (thanks Tomek Jakubowski). It is a beautiful L3.7 and contains a plethora of armored chondrules. More than I've ever seen in any other meteorite. Something I haven't seen before is a BO chondrule with FeNI running through the Olivine. Please see images at: https://www.flickr.com/photos/stevewitt/sets/72157646327000960/

Please excuse the picture quality, there is no sunshine here today and that's generally how I get my best photos. As I said, I've never seen this before and wonder how common it is.I'd appreciate any and all feedback.
