Writeup from MB 104:

Bazine Creek        38°37’14.02"N, 99°48’29.34"W

Kansas, United States

Find: 2014 Apr 15

Classification: Ordinary chondrite (L4)

History: A single mass was found by M. Rooney while he was hunting arrowheads.

Physical characteristics: Well-preserved secondary (classic oatmeal texture) fusion crust over 100% of the stone. No primary fusion crust visible.

Petrography: The plagioclase grains are small, typically <5-10 μm. Chondrules are well defined, consistent with a type 4 designation. A few of the low-Ca pyroxene grains exhibit polysynthetic twinning. This is characteristic of all type-3 and many type-4 ordinary chondrites, but is absent from type 5 OC. Thus, the sample is L4 and not L5.

Specimens: Allen Shaw holds 372.65 g
