A friend emailed me a copy of this paper, but you can find it online here
(More proof that you should have a subscription to MAPS.)


This meteorite was initially regarded as unique, but  NWA 4301, a 685 gram stone recovered in Northwest Africa in 2006, is apparently fairly similar.  Zaklodzie is the less weathered of the two stones, though. 

Both Zaklodzie and NWA 4301 have been explained as the product of either differentiation-related or impact-related melting on the enstatite-chondrite parent body.  The specimens offered here are relevant to ongoing research, and are prefect examples for making thin sections or probe work.  There are 8-9 kilograms of this material known on earth.  These guys are more rare than martian or lunar meteorites, and we're not going to send a sample-return mission to the E-chondrite parent body any time soon. 

I tried to take close-up shots that displayed the interesting granular achondritiic structure of this meteorite -- some of them show it well, and some aren't quite as good.  Rest assured, every one of these slices displays it about as well as every other, but some of the photos didn't quite come through. 

A new mineral has also been discovered in this meteorite! 
Buseckite (see link) has yet to be found anywhere else, to my knowledge.
