Chug Chug 019        22°29.46’S, 69°07.57’W

Antofagasta, Chile

Find: 27 Oct 2018

Classification: Ordinary chondrite (H4, anomalous)

History: one piece of meteorite (field number 4-57) was found in the the desert by Mr. T. V. Kryachko.

Physical characteristics: a sample of meteorite has a brown fusion crust.

Petrography: M. A. Ivanova (Vernad) Meteorite consists of well-defined chondrules, 0.34±0.21 cm in size, embedded in matrix enriched in Fe-oxides. POP and PP chondrules are abundand, BO and PR are rare; minerals are olivine, pyroxene, Fe,Ni-metal and iron oxides, sulfide, quartz, phosphate, carbonate and chromite. Glass of plagioclase composition occurs in chondrules. Shock stage is S1, weathering grade is W3.

Geochemistry: Mineral compositions and geochemistry: M. A. Ivanova. Olivine Fa10.2±0.28 (N=39), orthopyroxene Fs11.6±4.44; Wo0.64±0.47, Fe/Mn = 21.2±8.7 (N=32) , clinopyroxene is represented by pigeonite : Fs29-32Wo8-12 and augite Fs3-4Wo37-43; plagioclase glass in chondrule has a variable composition: Ab44-88Or0.7-13; Fe,Ni-metal contains 4.0-15.7 wt% Ni, 0.48±0.04 wt% Co; sulfide is represented by troilite. Oxygen isotopic composition (OU): δ17O = 3.100, δ18O 4.589, Δ17O = 0.714; δ17O 3.083, δ18O = 4.605, Δ17O 0.688 (all ‰).

Classification: based on chondrules size (0.34 ± 0.21 cm), very reduced silicates compared to H chondrite (Fa10), Co content (0.48 wt.%) in low-Ni Fe,Ni-metal and oxygen isotopic composition, this meteorite is an anomalous H chondrite. Based on homogeneous olivine composition but very clear boundaries of chondrules and variable low-Ca pyroxene composition, petrological type should be 4.

Specimens: individual sample of meteorite (1.54 g) and 1 polished section are deposited in Vernad.
