Sahara 99676 Meteorite L6
This meteorite has some very interesting characteristics. It has areas that are compressed and contain black shock lines only a fraction of an inch away from areas with easily visible chondrules. Some of the larger flakes of metal are two-tone in color and appear to be both nickel iron and troilite. Some large chondrules 3/16th of an inch in diameter have been found during cutting. Some of these are not really armored but are surrounded by rings of scattered flakes of metal.
