Sample Number DOM 10102
Newsletter 34,2
Location Dominion Range
Field Number 21346
Dimensions 6.7 x 4.4 x 1.3
Weight 61.072
Original Classification CV3 Chondrite
Macroscopic Description - Cecilia Satterwhite
The exterior is covered with fractured black fusion crust over 75% of its surface. Some of the surfaces are frothy and abundant chondrules/inclusions are visible in areas devoid of fusion crust. The meteorite has a pebbly texture. The interior matrix is a dark gray to black with abundant light colored inclusions/chondrules. Evaporites and moderate oxidation are present.
Thin Section (,2) Description - Cari Corrigan, Linda Welzenbach and Nicole Lunning
The section exhibits few large chondrules (up to 3 mm) and CAIs in a lighter colored matrix. Olivines range from Fa1-32. The meteorite is unequilibrated, and is probably a reduced CV3 chondrite.
