Northwest Africa 11014 (NWA 11014)

(Northwest Africa)

Purchased: 2016 Sep

Classification: Ordinary chondrite (L3)

History: Purchased by Darryl Pitt in September 2016 from a Moroccan dealer at the Denver Show.

Petrography: (A. Irving and S. Kuehner, UWS) Well-formed, closely-packed chondrules (apparent diameter 400±400 µm; several much larger, e.g., 6 mm, 1 cm) are set in a fine-grained, dark matrix.

Geochemistry: Olivine (Fa0.9-69.9, Cr2O3 in ferroan examples 0.06-0.14 wt.%, mean 0.10±0.03 wt.%, N = 7), orthopyroxene (Fs1.0-12.1Wo0.6-0.2, N = 3), subcalcic augite (Fs8.4Wo28.7), augite (Fs2.7Wo42.0). Magnetic susceptibility log χ (× 10-9 m3/kg) = 4.80.

Classification: Ordinary chondrite (L3).

Specimens: 22 g including one polished thin section at UWB; remainder with DPitt.
