Dar al Gani 1064 (DaG 1064)        27°2.10’N, 16°24.27’E

Al Jufrah, Libya

Found: 21 Nov 2000

Classification: Ureilite (polymict)

Petrography: (C.A. Lorenz, Vernad) The meteorite is medium-to coarse-grained breccia, composed by angular olivine, minor pyroxene fragments of 0.3-2.5 mm of size. Locally, the olivine is rich in tiny metal inclusions concentrated along grain boundaries, some cracks and olivine-graphite contacts. Fine-grained clastic matrix mainly consists of the same minerals. Minor minerals are feldspar, sulfide, FeNi metal, graphite and diamond. The minor lithologies of the meteorite are melt rocks, feldspathic clasts, carbonaceous chondrite inclusions. The carbonaceous chondrite inclusions range from 50–700 μm and make up 0.9 vol.% of this meteorite.

Classification: According to the coordinates of find, the stone could be pared with DaG 999.
