Writeup from MB 109:

Northwest Africa 13067 (NWA 13067)

(Northwest Africa)

Purchased: 2019

Classification: HED achondrite (Eucrite)

History: The meteorite was purchased from a meteorite dealer in Morocco.

Physical characteristics: Greyish rock with some fusion crust.

Petrography: The meteorite is a fragmental breccia composed of up to 3 mm sized basaltic and sparse up to 2 mm sized black impact melt clasts set into a clastic matrix. Mineral phases are predominantly up to 300 µm sized pyroxene and up to 700 µm sized calcic plagioclase grains. Pyroxene is compositionally zoned indicating a low degree of thermal metamorphism. Minor phases include silica, chromite, and troilite. No metallic iron has been detected.

Geochemistry: low-Ca pyroxene: Fs37.5±7.9Wo7.6±1.2 (Fs31.7-53.1Wo6.4-9.6, FeO/MnO=24-29, n=15); Ca-pyroxene: Fs48.4±4.0Wo23.4±0.6 (Fs45.5-58.0Wo22.9-25.2, FeO/MnO=25-31, n=13); calcic plagioclase: An87.7±5.8 (An82.0-94.6, n=13)
