Writeup from AMN 37(1):
Sample Number DOM 10101
Newsletter 37,1
Location Dominion Range
Field Number 21175
Dimensions 5.5 x 6.0 x 4.0
Weight 241.80
Original Classification CO3 chondrite
Pairing DOM 10101 , DOM 10847
Mineral Composition (%Fa &  %Fs)
Fayalite (mol%): 24-56; Ferrosilite (mol%): 1-3
Macroscopic Description - Cecilia Satterwhite
The exteriors have black fusion crust, fractured and frothy in areas with some oxidation. Areas without fusion crust are weathered brown with some evaporites visible. The interiors are a black matrix with heavy oxidation and small white inclusions visible.
Thin Section Description (,2) - Linda Welzenbach, Pamela Salyer and Tim McCoy
The sections consist of abundant small (up to 1 mm) chondrules, chondrule fragments and mineral grains in a dark matrix. Metal and sulfide occur both within and rimming the chondrules. Olivine ranges in composition from Fa14-56, with a continuous range of intermediate compositions and an average at Fa31-35. Pyroxenes range Fs1-9Wo1-3. The matrix appears to consist largely of Fe-rich olivine. These meteorites are CO3 chondrites and are likely paired.
