Northwest Africa 14282 (NWA 14282)

Morocco

Purchased: 2016

Classification: Ureilite

History: The meteorite was found by an anonymous finder in northwest Africa and bought by the main mass holder in Chenzhou, China

Petrography: This meteorite has granular texture and is mainly comprised of olivine, clinopyroxene and orthopyroxene with minor graphitic carbon. The grain sizes of the olivine and pyroxene range from 0.3 to 1.5 mm. Silicate grains are subhedral to anhedral, and the triple junctions of the grain boundaries could be observed in this meteorite. Reverse zoning is absent in silicate. Fe-oxides occurred along grain boundaries.

Geochemistry: Olivine Fa11.1-12.2, N=15; orthopyroxene Fs9.2-12.9Wo6.1-7.0, N=8; clinopyroxene Fs4.3-7.2Wo53.0-55.0, N=13
