L6 Chondrite.

A shower of 12 stones with a total weight of 70 kg fell on April 15, 1986, at Xihe, southeast of Suizhou City. Several shock veins have drawn considerable attention because they contain high pressure polymorphs of several minerals which are only stable at pressures found deep in the earth's mantle. These minerals include new varieties of familiar minerals [e.g., merrillite] as well as three entirely new minerals — Tuite, Wangdaodeite, Xieite — polymorphs of merrillite, ilmenite, chromite, respectively.
