This is my latest purchase: 1.8 kilo ordinary chondrite from North Africa. It looks amazing in person.

Does anyone know if it could be considered oriented? At least to a small degree?

From some angles it has a shield shape, so sure, it's oriented to some degree. It probably separated from a main mass late in flight, not enough time to produce flow lines or a lip, but almost certainly fell with that smoothly crusted side facing down. Nice piece!
