NWA 10499 under Crossed Polarized Light

The deserts of Northwest Africa have preserved an amazing number of meteorites, which had they fallen on more humid soils, would long since have rusted and decomposed.   NWA 10499 is a chondrite purchased in 2015 from a dealer in Zagora, Morocco.  The distinctly round shapes of chondrites are revealed very clearly in its thin sections.
