I received my 2.4 kilo NWA 8529 H-6 Chondrite yesterday and processed it
into my sphere rough today.

The good, it was quite fragmented but I was able to find the most solid area
to cut my rough from.

The bad, the cube does have some cracks and I hope Dmitry can stabilize it
before he makes it into a sphere PLUS it?s BROWN and I?m kind of sick of
brown spheres.

I have a couple questions.

Is it acceptable to fix separated slices?

If so what do you use?

Are collectors, in general, interested in large slices like this even though
they are have a separated section?

Should I just cut or continue to separate the separated slices in to smaller

Here it is on the saw, which was just big enough to process this whole

The remaining cuts, the top left end cut is the only piece that stayed
together which is ironic because I thought it would fall to pieces due to
all of the fragments
