Writeup from MB 105:

Northwest Africa 10589 (NWA 10589)

Morocco

Purchased: 2015

Classification: Carbonaceous chondrite (CV3)

Petrography: Chondrules range from 300-1700 μm in diameter and have an average diameter of ~850 μm; many chondrules have igneous rims. Also present are a few mm-sized amoeboid olivine inclusions and a few small CAIs, 300-700 μm in size. The rock contains ~40 vol.% matrix. Opaque phases include sulfide, magnetite and only rare grains of metallic Fe-Ni. This suggests that the rock is an oxidized CV3 chondrite.

Classification: CV3-oxidized
