Original Classification EH3 Chondrites
Macroscopic Description - Kathleen McBride and Cecilia Satterwhite
Exteriors of these meteorites are covered with brown/black fusion crust. The interiors range from dark gray to black in color with heavy oxidation, rust and metal. Some have rusty weathered inclusions and chondrules.
Thin Section (,2) Description - Corrigan, and Tim McCoy
These sections are similar enough that one description suffices. The sections show an aggregate of chondrules (up to 1 mm), chondrule fragments, and pyroxene grains in a matrix of about 30% metal and sulfide, including daubreelite. Chondrules contain traces of olivine. Microprobe analyses show the olivine is Fa2 and pyroxene is Fs1-12, though most are Fs1. Kamacite contains 2.7 wt. % Si. These meteorites are EH3 chondrites.
