Writeup from MB 104:

Northwest Africa 10329 (NWA 10329)

(Northwest Africa)

Purchased: 2015

Classification: HED achondrite (Eucrite, brecciated)

History: The meteorite was purchased by Tomasz Jakubowski from a local meteorite dealer in Zagora, Morocco and donated to MNB.

Physical characteristics: One individual completely covered by fusion crust.

Petrography: The meteorite is a breccia composed of basaltic clasts with different mineral grains sizes set into a less abundant clastic matrix. Dominant minerals in clasts and matrix are pyroxene with very fine exsolution lamellae and calcic plagioclase. Minor phases include chromite SiO2 polymorphs, and troilite.

Geochemistry: low-Ca pyroxene: Fs51.9±7.4Wo10.6±3.4 (Fs36.4-62.1Wo5-18.9, n=33, FeO/MnO=28-34); Ca-pyroxene: Fs33.9±6.5Wo37.8±7.4 (Fs29.4-48.8Wo21-42.9, n=16, FeO/MnO=30-34); calcic plagioclase: An83.9±1.1 (An80.2-85.8, n=19)
