Adrar, Algeria

Purchased: 2023 Aug 1

Classification: Rumuruti chondrite (R3-5)

History: Reportedly found on September 2, 2018, in the Tanezrouft DCA in Algeria.

Petrography: (K. Metzler, IfP) Chondritic breccia, consisting of light and dark chondritic clasts, embedded in a matrix of isolated chondrules and chondritic debris. Dark clasts represent chondritic lithologies of type 3, light clasts are metamorphosed and belong to the petrologic type 5.

Geochemistry: Mineral compositions and geochemistry: Clasts of petrologic type 3: Mean olivine composition: Fa14.2±6.0 (Fa4.0-22.7); n=12; mean low-Ca pyroxene composition Fs10.5±8.7Wo1.4±1.0 (Fs1.1-20.7Wo0.4-3.4); n=13. Clasts of petrologic type 5: Mean olivine composition: Fa38.8±0.3 (Fa38.4-39.2); n=8; mean low-Ca pyroxene composition Fs29.8±0.5Wo1.3±0.9 (Fs28.9-30.7Wo0.6-3.4); n=8.

Classification: R chondrite based on mineral chemistry. Genomict breccia, consisting of clasts of petrologic type 3 (unequilibrated olivine and pyroxene) and type 5 (equilibrated olivine and pyroxene).
