This hand specimen consists of a heavy, somewhat oxidized Iron meteorite. This meteorite shows no definite crystalline form and is only slightly damaged, in the form of small scuff marks and abrasions on exposed edges. All of its edges are curved and its faces are slightly concave. They are all covered with a thin layer of oxidized iron that has the classic rusty-brown color and dull luster. The abraded edges, however, show the white metal peeking through.
