Macroscopic Description - Rachel Funk, Cecilia Satterwhite
The exteriors of these paired meteorites have black/brown fractured fusion crust with weathered areas and evaporites. The interiors are a dark gray to black matrix with some white specks, abundant in some areas and some large white inclusions. Some areas are rusty and weathered.
Thin Section Description (,2) - Cari Corrigan, Tim McCoy
These sections consist of abundant small (up to 1 mm) chondrules, chondrule fragments and mineral grains in a dark matrix. Metal and sulfide occur within and rimming the chondrules. Olivine ranges in composition from Fa1-56. Pyroxene analyses range from Fs1-62Wo0-2. The meteorites are CO3 chondrites, probably paired with the DOM 08004/DOM 10101 pairing group.
