The fusion crust has been largely weathered from the surface of the sample. In the area where it remains, it is thin (<.5mn) and shiny black. The existing fusion crust displays a radial pattern emanating from a point on the E surface, The interior of the stone is medium gray and contains inclusions that range from whitish-gray to black. There are several small fractures in the stone. A small amount of oxidation is present in the interior of the sample. The sample is approximately 6.6 x 7.8 x 4.3 cm.
