Writeup from MB 105:

Northwest Africa 10736 (NWA 10736)

Morocco

Purchased: 2015

Classification: Ordinary chondrite (L6)

History: Purchased from a local dealer in Quarzazate in 2015.

Physical characteristics: One stone of 237 g. Cut face is dark gray with some lighter gray to brown chondrule like objects, many reddish inclusions, troilite, and fresh metal.

Petrography: (R. Bartoschewitz, Bart) Microscopic examination of a thin section shows recrystallized and shocked matrix: mosaicism in olivine, undulatory extinction in plagioclase, strong metal/sulfide penetration in silicate fractures. Chondrules poor developed (0.8 mm).

Geochemistry: (R. Bartoschewitz, Bart, P. Appel and B. Mader, Kiel) Olivine Fa24.6±0,2 (n=10); pyroxene Fs20.5±0.2Wo1.9±0.1(n=5). Kamacite Ni=8.9, Co=1.0 wt.-%). Magnetic susceptibility (R. Bartoschewitz, Bart) log χ (× 10-9 m3/kg) = 4.92.

Classification: Ordinary chondrite (L6)

Specimens: 20.1 g on deposit at Kiel, main mass Dieter Janek, Eppan
