Jungo 005        40°53.047N, 118°21.159W

Humboldt County, Nevada, United States of America

Found: 8 Oct 10

Classification: Ordinary chondrite (L6)

History: A single stone was found by Mr. Scott Johnson on the south side of the Jungo dry lake bed on October 8, 2010. A piece of this stone was donated to Cascadia in July 2011.

Physical characteristics: The stone has a dark brownish-black exterior which represents a combination of weathered fusion crust and weathering rind. The cut face is reddish-brown and is cross-cut by dark veins.

Petrography: (M. Hutson, Cascadia). Chondrules are discernible, but are well-integrated with coarse matrix. Individual feldspar grains are easily observed in transmitted light and have undulose extinction. Approximately 75-80% of the opaques have been replaced by terrestrial weathering product, indicative of weathering grade W3. Olivine grains show mild to strong undulose extinction with irregular fractures. The section contains a roughly ovoid igneous-textured inclusion ~6 mm × 7 mm in size, which contains olivine, high- and low-Ca pyroxenes, and feldspar. Mineral compositions are equilibrated with those in the host chondrite.

Geochemistry: (M. Hutson, Cascadia). Olivine (Fa26.0±0.7, n=24) and low-Ca pyroxene (Fs22.2±1.7Wo1.6±0.3, n=10).

Specimens: A single 23.3 g piece and a polished thin section are on deposit at Cascadia. Mr. Scott Johnson holds the main mass.
