Jiddat al Harasis 084


Found 2002 December 5

Carbonaceous chondrite (CO3)

A complete stone weighing 59.47 g was found within the Jiddat al Harasis 073 L6 chondrite strewnfield. Classification and mineralogy (E. Gnos, UBE; B. Hofmann, NMBE; A. Al-Kathiri, UBE): Olivine ranges from Fa3.2 to Fa39.2. Low-Ca pyroxene shows a compositional range from  Fs1.1Wo2.7 to Fs4.9Wo0.9. Porphyritic olivine, barred olivine and granular olivine chondrules predominate. The average chondrule size is 0.13 mm. The matrix/chondrule+aggregates ratio is 1.02. Cathode luminescence are mainly red and yellow indicating petrologic grade 3.0-3.2. The average of two oxygen isotope analyses (I.A. Franchi and R.C. Greenwood, OU) yielded δ17O = -6.16‰, δ18O = -2.67‰, and Δ17O = -4.77‰. Weathering grade is W1, and the material is basically unshocked (S1). Specimens: all material at NMBE.
