Summary: The investigation of the Breece, New Mexico, siderite shows it to be a medium octahedrite (Om) composed chiefly of kamacite with lesser amounts of taenite bands and plessite fields. The most interesting constituent is cohenite as well-defined lamellae in the unusual arrangement similar to the familiar Reichenbach and Brezina lamellae.
