Zufar, Oman

Find: 2014 Mar 12

Classification: Lunar meteorite (feldspathic breccia)

History: Found by a prospector.

Physical characteristics: Fusion crust is absent.

Petrography: Brecciated. Plagioclase is stained pink from hematite. No petrography in thin section was carried out because of the small stone mass.

Geochemistry: Bulk composition (R. Korotev, WUSL) INAA of subsamples gave the following mean abundances (in wt.%) FeO 3.1, Na2O 0.35; (in ppm) Sc 4.6, La 0.8, Sm 0.33, Eu 0.74, Yb 0.26, Lu 0.040, Th 0.09.

Classification: Lunar (feldspathic breccia). The stone is indistinguishable in lithophile element composition from Dhofar 303, 305, 306, 309, 310, 908, 911, and 1085 and was found 0.7-1.6 km away from these.
