Writeup from MB 102:

Dar al Gani 1063 (DaG 1063)        27°16.45’N, 16°24.50’E

Al Jufrah, Libya

Found: 2002 May 27

Classification: Carbonaceous chondrite (CV3)

History: Three almost unweathered stones with a fresh fusion crust having a total mass of 410.3 g were found May 27, 2002, by an anonymous finder in the desert of Dar al Gani.

Petrography: A chondrite with abundant matrix and large chondrules.

Geochemistry: Olivine, Fa14±8 (range, Fa1-30); pyroxene in chondrules and aggregates, Fs3±3 (range, Fs0-11). Olivine in the matrix has a composition of Fa27±6. Oxygen isotopes (A. Pack, UGött): δ18O = -0.48, d17 O= -4.32, Δ17O = -4.072 (all per mil).

Classification: The meteorite is a carbonaceous chondrite of the CV3 group. Based on the relatively high abundance of metal the meteorite must be grouped to the reduced subgroup.
