Writeup from AMN 37(1):
Sample Number DOM 10848
Newsletter 37,1
Location Dominion Range
Field Number 21853
Dimensions 6.0 x 5.4 x 1.2
Weight 104.59
Original Classification H chondrite (impact melt)
Mineral Composition (%Fa &  %Fs)
Fayalite (mol%): 18-19; Ferrosilite (mol%): 15-16
Macroscopic Description - Cecilia Satterwhite
98% of the exterior is covered with pitted brown/black fusion crust with oxidation haloes. The interior is a dark gray matrix with metal and some lighter chondrules/inclusions. Some areas are a rusty brown with thick dark black veins running through the center.
Thin Section Description (,2) - Linda Welzenbach, Pamela Salyer and Tim McCoy
The section consists of shocked chondrules and chondrule fragments. Chondrules and fragments show moderate shock effects including minor mosaicism. A 6 mm wide melt vein dominates the section with metal and sulfide occurring as stringers within the vein. The vein is completely opaque. Olivine compositions are Fa18-19 and pyroxene is Fs15-16. The meteorite is an H chondrite impact melt.
