Fact sheet
Description: 

14265 had a glass coating on one side and was pitted by micrometeorites on the other side as though the glass coating has eroded away. It may have been a glass bomb. It is mostly matrix with only small clasts. 14265 has numerous fractures, some glass filled. The thin section shows vesicular glass bonding small fragments of a polymict breccia.

The sample weighed 65.79 grams before analysis. It has not been dated.
