Macroscopic Description - Kathleen McBride
This meteorite has a rusty brown exterior with no visible fusion crust on the surface. It is extremely fractured.
Thin Section (,2) Description - Cari Corrigan, Tim McCoy and Linda Welzenbach
This meteorite is an LL6 chondrite. Olivine values are Fa30-31. Pyroxene values are Fs25Wo2. Feldspar values are An10Or4-6. It exhibits numerous linear fractures, perhaps indicative of shock. This section contains a semi-circular, 1 mm diameter isotropic grain with a skeletal internal morphology. Incomplete analyses suggest it may be a spinel.
