A faceted curiosity to be sure.  One of the few extraterrestrial materials we have ever seen faceted - and considerably less expensive than something like a Pallasite Peridot.  The stone is of course opaque, but provides an interesting visual appearance and is a born conversation starter - a very 'space age' cut as well!  The 'silver' colored specks are metallic and actually reflect the light quite nicely.  Cut from the L3 type of Chondrite.
