Detailed Mineral List:

'Albite-Anorthite Series'
Description: Plagioclase is quite minor, but a weak X-ray diffraction peak observed by Mason & Maynes (1967).
Reference: Mason, B. & Maynes, A.D. (1967) The Composition of the Allegan, Bur-Gheluai, and Cynthiana meteorites: Proceedings of the United States National Museum 124(3624): Smithsonian Institution Press: Washington, DC. 12pages. (Oct 1967).
Baryte
Formula: BaSO4
Calcite
Formula: CaCO3
Reference: U.S. Geological Survey, 2005, Mineral Resources Data System: U.S. Geological Survey, Reston, Virginia.
Chromite
Formula: Fe2+Cr3+2O4
Reference: Meunier, S. (1884) Encyclopédie Chimique: Tome II, Métalloides, Appendice. – 2me cashier: Météorites. Dunod, Paris, 1884, 532 pp.; Mason, B. & Maynes, A.D.

(Oct 1967).
'Clinopyroxene Subgroup'
Description: Clinopyroxene (or, formerly, clinohypersthene) more abundant than orthopyroxene.

Enstatite var: Bronzite
Formula: (Mg,Fe2+)2[SiO3]2
Description: Smith's use of the term 'Bronzite' does not conform with modern usage. Orthopyroxene is modern and perhaps more precise. Mason & Maynes (1967) used the term 'hypersthene' in usage which is also dated
