Writeup from MB 105:

Northwest Africa 10514 (NWA 10514)

Morocco

Purchased: 2015 April

Classification: HED achondrite (Eucrite, monomict)

History: Purchased by team eegooblago (Brahim Tahiri, Dustin Dickens and Sean Tutorow) from a dealer in Morocco in April 2015.

Physical characteristics: The stone is dark, brownish to redish in colour with impact melt visible around the clasts. Amorphous areas (~1 mm) are present in patches.

Petrography: (S. Hutchinson, UWO) The rock is dominated by calcic plagioclase and low-Ca pyroxene with some silica polymorphs and oxides. Minerals are anhedral. Most pyroxenes show fine exsolution.

Geochemistry: Mineral compositions and geochemistry (EMPA, UWO): pyroxene: Fs57.3±6.8Wo8.3±5.9 (Fs50.5-62.8Wo4.0-16.0, n=17, Fe/Mn=27.5-32.1); calcic plagioclase: An89.1±2.4 (An87.4-91.3, n=20).

Classification: Eucrite, monomict breccia

Specimens: 68.2 g including a thin section and polished mount at UWO. Sean Tutorow holds the main mass.
