Writeup from MB 110:

Northwest Africa 13735 (NWA 13735)

Algeria

Purchased: Nov. 2019

Classification: Primitive achondrite (Winonaite)

History: Purchased by Bo Zhang in Nov. 2019 from an anonymous dealer.

Physical characteristics: Three brown stones partly covered with fusion crust and some metal-veined. The main mass is 2.3 kg, the other two pieces are 774 and 510 g.

Petrography: The rock displays a recrystallized texture with frequent 120 degree triple junctions. It is mainly composed of forsterite, diopside, enstatite, plagioclase with accessory troilite and kamacite. Grain sizes of silicates typically range from 50 to 300 µm.

Geochemistry: olivine: Fa4.3±0.2 (FeO/MnO=25±3, n=15); low-Ca pyroxene: Fs4.8±0.2Wo1.8±0.1 (FeO/MnO=17±1, n=15); Ca-pyroxene: Fs1.9±0.3Wo44.8±0.3 (FeO/MnO=17±7, n=5); feldspar: An21.4±2.4Ab75.7±2.1Or2.9±0.3, n=8). Oxygen isotope (Bao Huiming, LSU): δ18O=4.742, δ17O= 1.974, Δ17O= -0.537
