Lucian writes:
The meteorite presents patches of fusion crust, with displays of grayish to light-greenish interior. It is a breccia composed of up to 3 cm sized basaltic and impact melt clasts set into a fine-grained clastic matrix.

Minerals predominantly pyroxene with fine exsolution lamellae and calcic plagioclase with average grain sizes of about 80 μm. Minor phases include silica, ilmenite, chromite, troilite, and zircon. No metallic iron was detected.
