This is a rather interesting meteorite that helped foster the acceptance of the idea that chondrules do exist in some meteorites traditionally regarded as (primitive) achondrites.  Initially classified as an Acapulcoite, O-isotope data for this meteorite suggested otherwise.  It is still noted as an Acapulcoite in some of the following papers, but don't let that confuse you.  It's definitely a winonaite.

So, this meteorite is one of the few "primitive achondrites" that's not actually an achondrite.  As you can see from the photos, this full slice is full of chondrules.  It represents the most primitive material we know of from the Winonaite/IAB parent body.  Pretty cool.

A full fusion-crusted slice.  It looks like the stone was rotated while it was cutting on a circular saw; the cut is parallel, but the orientation of the finer scratches isn't aligned, so it looks like there are marks; they're all superficial and can't be felt when running one's fingers over the slice.  I've searched around - this is about as cheap as NWA 725 (and any other primitive achondrite) comes.
