Writeup from MB 106:

Northwest Africa 11060 (NWA 11060)

(Northwest Africa)

Purchased: 2016 Jul

Classification: Carbonaceous chondrite (CV3)

History: Purchased by Darryl Pitt in July 2016 from a dealer in Agadir, Morocco.

Petrography: (A. Irving and S. Kuehner, UWS) Granular chondrules and irregularly-shaped, fine grained CAI are set in a black matrix (~30 vol.%). An extremely fine grained dark inclusion consists of dust-sized grains (mostly olivine, pyroxene and taenite) plus sparse larger grains of forsterite, enstatite and more ferroan olivine.

Geochemistry: Olivine (Fa0.5-91.2, N = 3), orthopyroxene (Fs0.8-0.9Wo0.9-3.7, N = 3), diopside (Fs1.1-2.2Wo37.3-42.4, N = 2).

Classification: Carbonaceous chondrite (CV3).

Specimens: 20.4 g including one polished thin section at UWB; remainder with DPitt.
