CORREO, NEW MEXICO, H-4. A typical high iron common chondrite.

 

A very fine oriented high iron stone meteorite from Correo, New Mexico. 46.5 grams. This view is from the back side of the flight oriented stone. Fusion crust is readily apparent, and the lighter interior is evident in a broken area on the right and on the top. Under magnification tiny chondrules (round balls) are evident in these broken faces.
