Macroscopic Description - Roger Harrington
The fusion crust on these paired meteorites ranges from dull black to none present. Those lacking fusion crust have a dull black exterior. The fine grained black matrix has very small (<1 mm) tan inclusions. There is a trace amount of white evaporite material visible in two of the meteorites.
Thin Section (,6) Description - Tim McCoy, Linda Welzenbach, Cari Corrigan, and Rhiannon Mayne
These sections are so similar that a single description suffices. The sections consist of a few small chondrules (up to 0.5 mm), mineral grains and CAIs set in a black matrix; rare metal and sulfide grains are present. Olivine compositions are Fa0-46, orthopyroxene is Fs4 The meteorites are CM2 chondrites.
