Sample Number DOM 10597
Newsletter 36,1
Location Dominion Range
Field Number 21796
Dimensions 4.0 x 4.0 x 2.5
Weight 47.51
Original Classification L3 chondrite
Mineral Composition (%Fa &  %Fs)
Fayalite (mol%): 3-41; Ferrosilite (mol%): 4-20
Macroscopic Description - Kathleen McBride
50% of the exterior is covered with thin black fusion crust. The rusty black matrix has numerous multicolored chondrules and abundant metal.
Thin Section Description (,2) - Cari Corrigan and Linda Welzenbach
The section exhibits numerous small, well-defined chondrules (up to 1.5 mm) in a black matrix of fine-grained silicates, metal and troilite. Weak shock effects are present. Polysynthetically twinned pyroxene is extremely abundant. The meteorite is moderately weathered. Silicates are unequilibrated; olivines range from Fa3-41, with most grains Fa, and pyroxenes from Fs4-20Wo0-2. The meteorite is an L3 chondrite (estimated subtype 3.8).
