Writeup from MB 109:

Tassédet 005        ~18°50’N, ~7°00’E

Agadez, Niger

Find: 2018

Classification: Ordinary chondrite (L6)

History: (Ziyao Wang) A meteorite strewn field was discovered west of Arlit. Ziyao Wang and Wenxi Jin purchased more than 100 pieces of above 50 kg from that strewn field from Adnane Sami in Agadez, Niger in 2018.

Physical characteristics: (Ziyao Wang) More than 100 individals and fragments between 3 kg and 5 g with fresh gray-brown fusion crust with contraction cracks. The total discovered mass exceeds 50 kg.

Petrography: (R. Bartoschewitz, Bart) Light gray matrix with well recognizable darker to dark gray chondrules (0.3-1.3 mm, av. 0.7 mm) of various types, and metal and sulfide particles that mainly present rusty halos.

Geochemistry: (R. Bartoschewitz, Bart, P. Appel and B. Mader, Kiel) Olivine Fa24.0±0.2 (n=19); pyroxene Fs20.3±0.4Wo1.5±0.1 (n=10); diopside En47Fs7Wo46; feldspar An9Or6 (n=2); chromite CRAL86, FFM88; galaxite. Kamacite Ni=5.3-6.7 wt%, Co=0.6-0.9 wt% (n=3=; troilite. Magnetic susceptibility (R. Bartoschewitz, Bart) log χ (× 10-9 m3/kg) = 4.81 ± 0.09 (n=10).

Classification: Ordinary chondrite (L6, S3, W1)

Specimens: 23.5 g at Kiel on deposit, Wenxi Jin and Ziyao Wang hold the main mass and 105 g with Bart.
