Macroscopic Description: Kathleen McBride
Exterior has 10% purple-black fusion crust with bubbles. The interior is a black matrix with a “shale-like” fracture pattern with evaporites and oxidation rind.

 

Thin Section (,2) Description: Tim McCoy, Linda Welzenbach and Cari Corrigan
The section consists of abundant small chondrules (up to 0.5 mm) that have been completely replaced by phyllosilicate set in an Fe-rich serpentine matrix. A marked linear fabric is apparent in the section. No isolated mineral grains or CAIs are apparent; sulfide grains and carbonates are present. Unaltered olivine or pyroxene grains of sufficient size for microprobe analyses were not found. The meteorite is a highly altered CM1 chondrite.
