# NASA data for MAC 87302 Weathering: A/B Fracturing: A Pairing: MAC 87302 Fa: 24 mol % Fs: 20 mol % NTL: 2.5 ± 0.4 krad
MAC87302 is rounded and 87303 is angular and these do not fit together, but macroscopically these two rocks are identical. Matrix is light-gray and inclusions are mostly light-colored. Some of the larger clasts are angular and appear to be clasts of ordinary chondrite material. The rest are clearly chondrules. There are small pockets of sulfide about 3-5 mm across as well as smaller grains disseminated throughout.
