Macroscopic Description - Mitchell Haller
50% of the exterior has glossy jet black fusion crust with gray weathered areas and minor fractures. The interior is a white/gray matrix with fracture lines throughout. Some inclusions/clasts are visible.
Thin Section Description (,2) - Cari Corrigan, Tim McCoy
The meteorite is unbrecciated, but with extensive shock veining cross cutting the sample. Shock veins form a network with widths of 1 mm. Shock effects are extensive throughout the sample. Mineral compositions are homogeneous with orthopyroxene (Fs60Wo2), with lamellae of augite (Fs25Wo44), and plagioclase (An87Or0.5). The Fe/Mn ratio of the pyroxene is ~28. The meteorite is a eucrite.
