Sample No.: MET 001038
Location: Meteorite Hills
Field No.: 12840
Dimensions (cm):   1.5x0.75x0.75
Weight (g): 3.694
Meteorite Type: Ungrouped Iron
    MET001038

Macroscopic Description: Kathleen McBride
The exterior of this iron is covered completely with smooth brown/black fusion crust with oxidation visible.

Thin Section Description: Tim McCoy
This meteorite is undoubtedly paired with the ungrouped iron MET 00428. Like MET 00428, it exhibits ~10-20 vol.% of rounded to elongate sulfide inclusions in a matrix of metal. This texture is uncommon in iron meteorites, but is known from at least one member of group IIE (e.g., Mont Dieu). This is probably an ungrouped iron, but may be a member of group IIE.
