The exterior of this carbonaceous chondrite is black with light colored chondrules. Only small patches of purplish fusion crust remain. It is pitted and has a rough texture. The matrix is black with light colored chondrules, mm in size. It is very soft and chondrules fall out easily or break. There are some areas of rust but the amount of metal seems minor.
