Macroscopic Description - Kathleen McBride
The exteriors of these ordinary chondrites have brown/black fusion crust with some oxidation. The steel gray to black matrix has small vugs and metal.
Thin Section Description (,2) - Cari Corrigan and Tim McCoy
These sections are similar enough that one description is sufficient to describe both. Olivines in the sections are of composition Fa25, pyroxenes are Fs21Wo2. These meteorites are shock blackened L chondrites of petrologic type 5.
