History: Purchased by Marcin Cimala in Tan Tan, January 2015. Physical: Single stone with weathered exterior, saw cuts shows many densely packed chondrules . Petrography: The meteorite displays a black interior and is composed of up to 2 mm sized chondrules, large about 5 mm sized whitish CAIs, and olivine amoeboids set into a fine-grained almost opaque matrix. Chondrules rarely show brownish staining due to terrestrial weathering; type II chondrules are absent.
