Writeup from MB 105:

Northwest Africa 10585 (NWA 10585)

Morocco

Purchased: 2015

Classification: Carbonaceous chondrite (CV3)

Petrography: Chondrules range in size with 700-1000 μm; many have igneous rims. Many chondrules have abundant metal-sulfide blebs in their interiors. Also present is limonite, formed by terrestrial weathering of metal. The apparent lack of magnetite suggests that the rock is a reduced CV3 chondrite. The meteorite contains ~35 vol.% matrix. Also present is a Fluffy Type A CAI that is 2.8 mm across. One AOA was observed; it is 480 μm long.

Classification: CV3-reduced.
