Petrography: The meteorite displays a black interior and is composed of about 0.1-0.3 mm chondrules, chondrule pseudomorphs, individual mineral fragments and rare CAIs, many surrounded by fine-grained accretionary rims set into an abundant fine-grained matrix. Main matrix phases are phyllosilicates, carbonates, and pyrrhotite. The meteorite is unshocked and shows little sign of terrestrial alteration.
