Macroscopic Description: Kathleen McBride
40% of the exterior is covered with a dull black fusion crust that exhibits very tiny polygonal fractures. The interior reveals 1-2 mm size gray chondrules embedded in a soft, gray matrix.

Thin Section (, 2) Description: Tim McCoy
The section consists of large (up to 2 mm), well-defined chondrules in a matrix of finer-grained silicates, sulfides and very abundant magnetite. The meteorite is little weathered, but extensively shock blackened. Olivine is Fa30 and orthopyroxene is Fs25. Plagioclase exhibits a broad range of compositions (An24-76). The meteorite is a CK4 chondrite.
