111028 - Image of the Month for November

A couple of days early, for the month of November we bring you a really great slice of Allende. Allende fell in February 1969, providing a bounty of the previously very scarce CV3 material, making this an important fall from a scientific viewpoint. This image of a 47g slice was provided by Kieron Heard. Click here to view the image in the Gallery or here for our archive of all previous "Image of the Month" images.

As mentioned last month I'm still short of image for inclusion in the image of the month, submissions would be very welcome. Thank you.

Thats a lovely slice of Allende Kieron. Its an amazing meteorite for sure and visually i like the look of the slightly weathered specimens like yours as the there is more definition and colouration to the chondrules. Beautiful!
