This page illustrates the variety of structures that can be found in chondrules in particular 
for the petrographic type 3 where no recrystallization masks the original chondrule structure. 
Numerous images from this page are coming from meteorite Brownfield (1937) which
exhibits much more chondrule types then my other specimens.
