Jiddat al Harasis 395 (JaH 395)        ~19°55'N, ~56°15’E

Al Wusta, Oman

Found: 23 Mar 2000

Classification: HED achondrite (Diogenite)

History unknown.

Physical characteristics: (E. Haiderer, Haiderer and R. Bartoschewitz, Bart) One 243 g brown stone with black specks was discovered by an anonymous finder on March 23, 2000. Magnetic susceptibility log χ (× 10-9 m3/kg) = 4.29.

Petrography: (R. Bartoschewitz, Bart) Fine- to medium-grained unbrecciated pyroxenite (0.05 to 1 mm) with primarily protogranular texture composed of orthopyroxene, minor chromite, accessory troilite, and pentlandite.

Geochemistry: (R. Bartoschewitz, Bart, P. Appel/B. Mader Kiel) Orthopyroxenes Fs19.0-29.7, Wo1.2-1.8, Fe/Mn = 29 (at%); olivine Fa29.6, Fe/Mn = 42 (at%). Pentlandite Ni 2.3, Co 0.1; chromite TiO2 1.0 to 1.3, Al2O3 11.6 to 13.1, MgO 2.7 to 4.3 (wt%). Cr/(Cr+Al) 74 (at%). O-isotopes: (I. A. Franchi and R. C. Greenwood, OU): δ17O=1.99‰, δ18O=4.23‰, Δ17O= -0.21‰, Δ17O linear= -0.23‰.

Classification: (R. Bartoschewitz, Bart) Achondrite (diogenite).

Specimens: A total of 20 g is on deposit at Kiel, Bart holds 10.2 g and one thin section, main mass with anonymous finder.
