Dar al Gani 1067 (DaG 1067)        27°23.06’N, 16°05.77’E

Al Jufrah, Libya

Find: Feb 2006

Classification: Carbonaceous chondrite (CK5)

History: A single stone weighing 260 g was found by Romano Serra, OAM, during an expedition for meteorite search.

Physical characteristics: A single stone, almost completely covered by a fusion crust with several cracks.

Petrography: (V. Moggi Cecchi, G. Pratesi, S. Caporali, UniFi): The thin section displays a texture composed of sparse, millimeter-sized chondrules (mostly granular olivine) in a recrystallized matrix mainly consisting of olivine, with minor augite and intermediate plagioclase. Opaques are mainly Cr-rich magnetite, with minor troilite and rare altered kamacite.

Geochemistry: (V. Moggi Cecchi, G. Pratesi, S. Caporali, UniFi): Olivine (Fa33.3±1.3, Fe/Mn = 158±10, N = 7), augite (Fs10.7±0.4Wo45.8±1.3, Al2O3 = 1.06 Wt.%, N = 7). Feldspar An46.5Or2.6. Magnetite contains 4.5 wt.% Cr2O3. Oxygen isotopes: (I.Franchi, R.Greenwood, OU) δ17O = -4.62‰, δ18O = -0.70‰, Δ17O = -4.26‰.

Classification: Carbonaceous chondrite (CK5). Moderate weathering

Specimens: A total of 21.0 g specimen is on deposit at MSN-FI. The main mass is on deposit at OAM.
