This specimen consists of two pieces (field numbers 2777 and 2757) which fit together perfectly. The stone has thin black fusion crust except for one fracture surface. The bottom is smooth and has some deep regmaglypts. The fracture surface has weathered to a yellowish-brown color and has a rough texture. The interior is light gray with some oxidation halos.
