Cole Creek H5

One of my first thin sections was Cole Creek H5. I’ve picked up a few more slides over time because it’s a fun meteorite to view in thin section. Barred olivine chondrules survived thermal metamorphism well. There is variety among the BO chondrules with a high proportion being compound.

These photos are from four thin sections and are at different magnifications. All are in cross-polarized light.
