Calcium-, aluminum-rich inclusions (CAIs) are the first rocks to form in the solar system. Some inclusions are igneous and a very few of these (called F inclusions) experienced significant mass dependant fractionation in oxygen [1], and in some cases, other isotopic systems (FUN inclusions). Increasing the number and types of F inclusions will provide additional constraints on CAI formation and their formation environments. We report here on a Compact Type A (CTA) inclusion from Allende with an overall snake-like morphology, is an F inclusion, and initial ^(26)Al/^(27)Al that was canonical.
