This achondrite has areas of shiny fusion crust remaining on all surfaces. Some sides are smooth, while others are rough and contain numerous vugs. Where there is no fusion crust the specimen is coarse grained, white and dark gray in color, with some yellowish oxidation. No individual clasts are visible. There is a very small amount of oxidation present in the interior of this stone.
