Sample No.: MET 01018
Location: Meteorite Hills
Field No.: 13874
Dimensions (cm):   6.5x5.5x3.5
Weight (g): 222.40
Meteorite Type: EH3 Chondrite
    MET01018

Macroscopic Description: Kathleen McBride
80% of the sample's exterior has weathered fusion crust with oxidation haloes and polygonal fractures. The interior is weathered with some rust and light colored chondrules (mm sized).

Thin Section (,4) Description: Linda Welzenbach, Tim McCoy
The section shows an aggregate of chondrules (up to 1 mm), chondrule fragments, and pyroxene grains in a matrix of about 30% metal and sulfide. Several chondrules contain olivine. Weathering is modest, with staining of some enstatite grains and minor alteration of metal and sulfides. Microprobe analyses show the olivine is Fa0-1, orthopyroxene is Fs0-2 and metal contains ~3.5 wt.% Si. The meteorite is an EH3 chondrite.
