Here is a photograph of a chondrule from Sahara 99676. It might once have been a nice barred olivine chondrule but it is somewhat slurred now. The meteorite does have many nicely intact chondrules and a nice scattering of metal grains. We have even found some very large chondrules up to 1/4 inch across during cutting. The meteorite also has one area that was more intensely shocked which has shock veins running through it.
