Achondrite (ureilite)

A single stone of 4.258 kg, partly covered in fusion crust, was recovered during a natural science expedition on a gravel plateau west of Wadi Ghadun. A further individual of 3.099 kg plus 12 fragments of between 2 and 530 g (total: 1.667 kg) have been recovered within a 27 m radius. Classification (F. Wlotzka, MPI; Rainer Bartoschewitz, Bart): composed of coarse (1-3 mm), equigranular olivine (cores Fa19.4, Cr2O3 0.55%) and pigeonite (Fs17.4, Wo 9.0, Cr2O3 1.2%). Olivine grain rims reduced to Fa11, they contain finely disseminated metal grains. Carbonaceous matter occurs as narrow, intergranular veins. Moderately shocked, with mosaicism in olivine. Specimens: type specimens, 18 g, MPI; 557 g Vernad; main mass, 4217 g, Bart; nearly 4 kg with anonymous finder.
