Jarud Qi         ~ 44°37’ N, 120°56’ E

China, Inner Mongolia, Tongliao County

Find 2000, (possible Fall, 1999)

Chondrite, L5

History and physical characteristics: With a loud noise a meteorite fell close to a sheperd on a small hill in Huang Hua Shan Xiang near Jarud Qi (also known as Zhalute Qi and Lubei), while he was feeding sheep. Later he reported to the villagers that many stones totaling 100 kg fell, one of them killed a sheep. About one year later, an antique dealer took three of these stones to his home. In 2006 one of the stones was obtained by R. Bartoschewitz. This stone is a 452 g fragment, about 50% is covered with black fusion crust. There is no further information concerning the remnant pieces and the main mass. Magnetic susceptibility (Bart.): log χ = 4.87 x 10-9 m3/kg.

Petrography (R. Bartoschewitz, Bart): Well recognizable chondrules up to 2 mm are embedded in fine-grained recrystallized matrix with metal up to 1.5 mm, and a 1 mm wide melt vein.

Geochemistry(R.Bartoschewitz, Bart, P. Appel and B. Mader, Kiel): olivine Fa24.9±0.2, pyroxene Fs20.8±0.2 Wo1.6±0.2, and plagioclase An10.4-20.2Or5.3-9.5. Kamacite: Ni 6.5-7.3, Co 0.9-1.4; taenite: Ni 21.3-30.5, Co 0.42-0.69; chromite: Al2O3 6.5-5.6, TiO2 2.5-2.6, MgO 2.4-5.8 (all in wt%).

Classification (R. Bartoschewitz, Bart): L5, shock stage S2, weathering grade W0/1.

Type specimens: A total of 20 g is on deposit at Purple Mountain Observatory in Nanjing. Bart. holds 384 g and one thin section, holder of main mass is unknown.
