Jiddat al Harasis 567 (JaH 567)        19° 22’ 34" N, 55° 15’ 53" E

Zufar, Oman

Found: 2009 Mar 6

Classification: Ordinary chondrite (H3.6)

Petrography: (A. Irving and S. Kuehner, UWS) Well-formed, small (<0.5 mm) chondrules. Minerals are olivine, orthopyroxene, pigeonite, sodic plagioclase, altered kamacite, taenite, troilite.

Geochemistry: Olivine (Fa0.5-51.5; Cr2O3 in ferroan olivine 0.02-0.06 wt.%, mean 0.04, s.d 0.03, N = 7), orthopyroxene (Fs3.7-17.8Wo0.3-0.8), pigeonite (Fs26.1Wo11.6). Oxygen isotopes (D. Rumble, CIW): Analyses of acid-washed subsamples by laser fluorination gave δ18O 5.27, 5.83; δ17O 3.45, 3.80; Δ17O 0.675, 0.736 per mil.

Classification: Ordinary chondrite (H3.6). Subtype estimated to be 3.6 based on Cr2O3 range in ferroan olivine. Estimation of subtype based on histograms (Fig. 4) in Grossman and Brearley (2005).
