Northwest Africa 7313 (NWA 7313)

(Northwest Africa)

Purchased: 2012 Feb

Classification: Ordinary chondrite (LL6)

History: Purchased by F. Kuntz in February 2012 from a dealer in Erfoud, Morocco.

Petrography: Coarse breccia composed predominantly of recrystallized clasts containing some remnants of large chondrules. A large, rounded, finer grained clast is completely recrystallized with triple grain junctions, and contains olivine and orthopyroxene of very similar composition to the respective minerals in the chondrule-bearing clasts.

Geochemistry: Olivine (Fa30.2±0.10), orthopyroxene (Fs24.1-24.2Wo1.9-2.4), clinopyroxene (Fs9.6-9.8Wo43.3-43.0). Recrystallized clast contains olivine (Fa30.0-30.7) and orthopyroxene (Fs23.7-24.5Wo1.0-1.6).

Classification: Ordinary chondrite (LL6).
