Hami 005        42°9’8.5"N, 93°26’2.06"E

Xinjiang, China

Found: 6 May 2013

Classification: Ordinary chondrite (H5)

History: On 6 May 2013, a team including Bingkui Miao, Yangting Lin, Shijie Li, Deqiu Dai, Wenjie Shen, Sen Hu, Lei Kesi,Peng Wang, Yongwang Lai, Zhipeng Xia found this meteorite ~25 km west of the Kumtag sand dune.

Physical characteristics: Total mass: 411 g (only 1 piece), no fusion curst, with a gray surface

Petrography: The meteorite consists mainly of a medium grained, granular aggregate of olivine and low-Ca pyroxene, with minor amounts of Fe-Ni alloy and troilite. The chondrules are moderately abundant and are well defined. The matrix is moderately recrystallized. It has a relatively high abundance of Fe-Ni alloy and troilite.

Geochemistry: Minerals are uniform. Olivine: Fa17.6±1.0 (n=19); low-Ca pyroxene: Fs15.7±1.2Wo1.65±0.7 (n=21).

Classification: Ordinary chondrite (H5, S3, W3).
