Description: An assemblage of 5 mixed oxide phases and at least 2 metals. White phases are metals, either austenites (Fe,Ni,Mo,Ru) or silver. Oxide phases are by contrast: light grey is zirconolite (CaZrTi2O7 with some substituted species); mid grey is hollandite (Ba[Fe,Cr,Ti]8O16) with some Cs on Ba site; dark grey is perovskite loveringite (Ca[Ti,Fe,Cr,Zr]21O38) or spinel ([Fe,Ti,Cr]3O4).
