NWA 4910 “Begaa” Meteorite Thin Section

Chondrules, chondrules, and more chondrules. It’s amazing how the NWA 4910 meteorite can be packed so dense with chondrules and have so little matrix gluing them together. Make sure to look for the numerous armored chondrules and radial pyroxene chondrules contained in the thin section. Containing 3.06 billion pixels, this is the largest image I have ever created. The circular artifact on the left of the image is due to the great size of the thin section going over the microscope’s glass-stage aperture rim.

The NWA 5028 meteorite makes a stunningly beautiful thin section mosaic. With its large calcium-aluminum-rich inclusions and numerous chondrules, viewers are taken to an alien terrain billions of years old – to a time when the first objects were forming in the Solar System.

To create a good number of thin section slides of NWA 8159, the original oblong fragment was split into two pieces. The previous mosaic of NWA 8159 represents one half of this split. The thin section presented here is the other half.
