Grove Mountains 020015

Antarctica

Found 2002

Carbonaceous chondrite (CK4)

The stone is a small (10.1 g), dark gray and friable fragment with a part of black fusion crust remains. Classification and mineralogy (CAS): There are abundant mineral fragments and several lithic clasts, with a few large chondrules (0.5 - 1.5 mm in diameter). The matrix (~ 60 vol%) is recrystallized (<10 μm); metal and sulfide are common (a total of ~5% vol%), as opaque nodules and tiny grains in chondrules and matrix. Olivine (Fa30.2±0.4) and low-Ca pyroxene (Fs20.7±9.8) are FeO-rich. Shock stage is S1; weathering grade is W1.
