This inclusion inside of NWA 869 looks like a piece of Ghubarra.

A few words about my photo's. I'm no expert! That sums it up. Most of these images were taken years ago using a high school microscope, an adapter and hand sanded meteorites. The camera is an Olympus Camedia 5.0. Needless to say, these pictures are often blurry around the edges and were taken purely for my own study and enjoyment. I decided I may as well share them.

A slice of Ghubarra. The following images demonstrate the effects of terrestrial weathering on a micro level. The rust is barely visible in hand.

On closer inspection we see oxidation following the cracks, fissures and boundary areas.

That does it for now. Over the years I've taken many hundreds of images. Maybe I'll ad more later.

I almost forgot Arielite! Here's a few images to stir the imagination.

Cr spinel crystals with a silicate metal lens in the center. These extraordinary crystals are found in a meteorwrong I recovered back in 2001.
