Macroscopic Description: Kathleen McBride
40% of the exterior is covered with black fusion crust with shiny patches. The interior consists of black and white mineral grains with some gray globs and translucent, tabular shaped minerals.

Thin Section (,4) Description: Tim McCoy
The section shows an unbrecciated intergrowth of coarse (up to 1 mm) pyroxene and plagioclase grains with a gabbroic texture. Pyroxene is exsolved to orthopyroxene (Fs50Wo5) and augite (Fs28Wo41) (Fe/Mn ~30) and plagioclase is An79-91Or0-1. Shock effects are extensive including darkening of silicates. The meteorite is an unbrecciated eucrite.
