Wittke, NAU) Unbrecciated medium-grained orthopyroxenite with inclusions of euhedral chomite crystals.Contains (vol%): Orthopyroxene = 94, chromite = 4, FeS = 2 and trace olivine. Orthopyroxene exhibits heavy undulatory extinction, shear zones show intense granulation and distortion of minerals.

Mineral compositions and geochemistry: Orthopyroxene (Fs21.6Wo2.0; FeO/MnO = 29), olivine (Fa27.3, FeO/MnO = 45) and chromite (Cr/Cr+Al = 79).
