DaG 1040

Dar al Gani 1040 is an odd CV3.  It has a light colored matrix and light colored chondrules.  In the hand a fresh slice sparkles with metal in the chondrules and the chondrules stand proud of the matrix.  It seems the matrix is friable and sheds a little during cutting.  In thin section it is rich with features.
