The section consists of an aggregate of olivine and pyroxene grains up to 1 mm across rimmed by carbon-rich material containing traces of metal. The olivines exhibit undulatory extinction. The olivine cores and rims are equilibrated (Fa8). Pyroxenes are pigeonite (Fs8Wo5) and subcalcic augite grains (Fs5Wo37). The meteorite is a ureilite.
