Sample Number DOM 10104
Newsletter 34,2
Location Dominion Range
Field Number 21926
Dimensions 9.0 x 4.0 x 3.0
Weight 200.952
Original Classification CO3 Chondrite
Pairing DOM 08139, DOM 10104, DOM 10299, DOM 10900
Macroscopic Description - Kathleen McBride and Cecilia Satterwhite
Black fractured fusion crust with evaporites and some oxidation is visible to varying degrees on these paired carbonaceous chondrites. The interiors are dark gray to black in color with white inclusions/chondrules some stained with oxidation and rust. These meteorites contain some metal and are moderately weathered.
Thin Section (,2) Description - Cari Corrigan, Linda Welzenbach and Nicole Lunning
These meteorites are so similar that a single description suffices. The sections consist of abundant small (up to 1 mm) chondrules, chondrule fragments and mineral grains in a dark matrix. Metal and sulfide occur within and rimming the chondrules. Glass within chondrules appears to be very clear/fresh. CAIs are abundant (mostly Type A), and range in size up to 1 mm. AOAs up to 1 mm are present, as well. Olivine ranges in composition from Fa0-66. These meteorites exhibit mild terrestrial alteration. These are CO3 chondrites (likely type 3.0-3.2), and are paired with the DOM 08004.
