Macroscopic Description - Kathleen McBride
Brown/black fusion crust with shiny patches covers 95% of this meteoriteÂ’s exterior surface. The interior is a gray to tan matrix with white and dark gray inclusions and tan clasts.
Thin Section (,4) Description - Tim McCoy and Linda Welzenbach
The section shows a groundmass of comminuted pyroxene and plagioclase (up to 0.5 mm) with fine- to coarse-grained basaltic clasts ranging up to 2 mm. Several clasts are aphanitic or exhibit acicular pyroxenes suggestive of an origin as impact melts. Pyroxene includes diogenite-like compositions (Fs20Wo2) and eucrite-like compositions (Fs21-64Wo1-40). Plagioclase is An85-92. The meteorite is a howardite.
