Thought to form on larger bodies in space where the rocks can differientiate they have more igneous type compositions. When a meteorite is made up of angular bits of rock it is called a breccia. If it is made of bits from several sources it is called a polymict breccia. This stone is a polymict eucrite breccia. It has not free metal, but is rich in light and dark mineral clasts with a beautiful honey color matrix.
