Macroscopic Description - Roger Harrington and Kathleen McBride
Dull black fusion crust, 1-2mm in thickness, covers 85% of the exteriors. The fusion crust is cracked on all the faces but the interior is not. The remaining 15% is a dark brown, fine grained matrix (006 has a 1 mm blue crystal in a vug on the Top-North end). The overall exterior of 006 has a pronounced aerodynamic shape with flow lines on the Bottom side. The interiors are a dark brown to black fine grained matrix with some mm sized white chondrules.
Thin Section (,2) Description - Cari Corrigan, Tim McCoy and Linda Welzenbach
The sections consist of abundant small (up to 1 mm) chondrules, chondrule fragments and mineral grains in a dark matrix. Metal and sulfide occur within and rimming the chondrules. Olivine ranges in composition from Fa0-51 and pyroxenes range from Fs1-15. The meteorites are CO3 chondrites.
