Sample Number DOM 10088
Newsletter 37,1
Location Dominion Range
Field Number 17204
Dimensions 6.25 x 3.25 x 1.0
Weight 33.97
Original Classification EL6 chondrite
Mineral Composition (%Fa &  %Fs)
Ferrosilite (mol%): 0-1
Macroscopic Description - Kathleen McBride
This enstatite chondrite has no fusion crust on the exterior. The interior is gray with some rust and a black vein. Some gray chondrules are visible.
Thin Section Description (,2) - Linda Welzenbach, Pamela Salyer and Tim McCoy
No traces of chondritic structure are visible in the thin section, which shows the meteorite to consist largely of comminuted or granular enstatite (grain size 0.1-0.2 mm), a considerable amount of nickel-iron, and minor amounts of sulfides and plagioclase. The meteorite is mildly weathered. Microprobe analyses show that the enstatite is almost pure MgSiO3 (FeO 0.1-0.3%); on average, the nickel-iron contains 0.9% Si. The meteorite is an EL6 chondrite.
