Identifier:
2019.9.80
Description:
This meteorite is an ordinary chondrite (stony meteorite), from the H group, petrologic type 5, and has melted breccia forming the matrix. The melted breccia indicates that the rock underwent metamorphism during an impact in space, which mixed different minerals together. The silver-metallic flakes easily seen in this sample are the iron-nickel grains.

The largest meteorite specimen found was 405 kilograms. This specimen weights 28 grams and has a low weathering (W1) and high shock.
