# NASA data for EET 87504 Weathering: B Fracturing: B/C Pairing: EET 87504 Fa: 3 mol % Fs: 6 mol %
All three specimens are weathered to a deep red-brown color with no fusion crust remaining. Oxidation haloes are obvious on the exterior surfaces as is gold-colored metal. Fractures penetrate the interior of the three specimens. Chipping revealed somewhat less weathered metal, lots of oxidation, and some colorless crystals. A minute amount of salt deposit is present. All three fragments are obviously paired.
