DescriptionRyder (1985) provides the only description: "15658 is a medium-grained, olivine-bearing basalt. Pigeonites range from 1 to 2 mm long and are twinned and zoned. Most plagioclases for stubby crystals up to about 1 mm, some of which are hollow. Some radial growth of plagioclase and pyroxene is present. Olivine forms scattered anhedral phenocrysts, and smaller grains are present, many as inclusions in pigeonite. Cristobalite, fayalite, and a range of opaque phases are present." No mode is given.
