Original Classification CV3 Chondrite
Macroscopic Description - Cecilia Satterwhite
The exterior has some fractured patches of black fusion crust. Areas without fusion crust show a matrix that is dark gray to black with evaporites and oxidation. Abundant chondrules/inclusions are visible and fractures penetrate the surface. The interior is a dark gray to black matrix with greenish color in areas; abundant inclusions/chondrules and moderate weathering.
Thin Section (,2) Description - Corrigan, Linda Welzenbach and Nicole Lunning
This section exhibits large sporadically altered chondrules (up to 3 mm) and CAIs in a slightly altered matrix. Olivines range from Fa0-13. The meteorite is unequilibrated, probably a CV3 chondrite.
