Several conjoint fragments of this eucrite were found within a few meters of each other, weighing together 268 g. Dhofar 182 is a very recent fall with a weathering grade of W0, as attested by the shiny black fusion crust covering the fragments.

The photo shown above is a 0.28 g crusted fragment, while that below shows a 90.1 g fragment with fresh black fusion crust and a view of the light-colored interior.
