Ordinary chondrite (high iron) (H4)
Find, 1960; 1.013 kg

A single stone was found south of Venus during after it was caught in a cotton stripping machine. Chondrules have well-defined boundaries within feathery/microcrystalline mesostases, but numerous veins of hydrous iron oxides and weathered opaques are present. Olivine composition (Fa17.8) and textures are representative for H4 ordinary chondrites. Polysynthetic twinned pyroxene crystals are abundant. Fe-Ni metal and troilite are still present, but have been partially removed by weathering.
