Macroscopic Description - Kathleen McBride
The exterior is covered with 100% brown/black fusion crust with polygonal fractures. The interior is a black fine grained matrix with light colored inclusions. The meteorite is moderately hard.
Thin Section (,2) Description - Cari Corrigan and Linda Welzenbach
The section consists of abundant (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 Fa0-44 and pyroxenes range from Fs1-3. This meteorite is a CO3 chondrite and is possibly paired with DOM 08004 pairing group.
