Macroscopic Description: Cecilia Satterwhite
80% of the exterior has brown fusion crust with oxidation. Interior is dark gray to black with metal and oxidation visible.

Thin Section (,2) Description: Linda Welzenbach, Tim McCoy
The section shows an aggregate of small chondrules (up to 1 mm), abundant chondrule fragments, and pyroxene grains in a matrix of about 30% metal and sulfide. Several chondrules contain olivine. Weathering is moderate, with staining of enstatite grains and heavy alteration of metal and sulfides. Microprobe analyses show the olivine is Fa1 , orthopyroxene is Fs1-2 and metal contains 3.1 wt.% Si. The meteorite is an EH3 chondrite.
