Macroscopic Description - Roger Harrington
This meteorite has dull black fusion crust over 40% of the exterior, with a trace of pale blue evaporites, probably sulfates. The interior is a dark gray fine grained matrix with <1mm light gray CAI’s throughout.
Thin Section (,2) Description - Cari Corrigan and Linda Welzenbach
The section exhibits large chondrules (up to 3 mm) and CAIs in a dark matrix. Olivines range from Fa1-40 and low-Ca pyroxene is Fs1. The meteorite is an unequilibrated carbonaceous chondrite, probably a reduced CV3.
