Macroscopic Description: Cecilia Satterwhite
90% black/brown fractured fusion crust covers the exterior of this ordinary chondrite. The interior is gray with heavy oxidation in areas and abundant gray and cream colored inclusions/chondrules present.

Thin Section (,2) Description: Linda Welzenbach, Tim McCoy
The section exhibits numerous small, well-defined chondrules (up to 1 mm) with fine-grained silicates, metal and troilite. Weak shock effects are present. Polysynthetically twinned pyroxene is extremely abundant. The meteorite is highly weathered. Silicates are unequilibrated; olivines range from Fa1-23 and pyroxenes from Fs1-23. The meteorite is an H3 chondrite (estimated subtype 3.8).
