Initial iodine isotopic compositions for 10 individual chondrules show a total range of 6.5%, corresponding with an age difference of 1.6 m.y. Possible interpretations are distinct formation ages, metamorphic ages, or isotopic inhomogeneities in the early solar system, and constrain models for chondrule formation. Two chondrules show evidence of either isotopic inhomogeneities or disturbances of their I-Xe systems. -B.M.
