This is a nice fragment of the Tagish Lake meteorite. On 18 January 2000 at 08:43 local time a huge fireball followed by loud detonations was widely observed over the Yukon Territory and northern British Columbia. An individual, Jim Brook, recovered several dozen meteorites totaling ~1 kg on the ice of Taku Arm, Tagish Lake, on January 25 and 26. The total mass collected was between 5 and 10 kg most of which is in permanent institutional storage.

Very little of this material is available and what is available is in very small fragments. This is a nice piece that weighs 20 milligrams.  Based on mineralogy, isotopic compositions, and bulk chemical compositions, Tagish Lake appears to be intermediate between CM and CI chondrites. It has significantly less amino acids than expected and it may be a very primitive carbonaceous chondrite, class C2 ungr.
