Shiny-black fusion crust covers all but one surface of this achondrite. The exterior surfaces have many vugs, typical of the other Allan Hills polymict eucrites, ranging in size from <1 mm to >1 cm. Chipping revealed an interior that is medium gray colored with mm sized white, yellow, and black clasts throughout. Several larger clasts (up to 1 cm. longest dimension) were noted.
