Writeup from MB 104:

Northwest Africa 10100 (NWA 10100)

(Northwest Africa)

Purchased: 2013 July 10

Classification: Carbonaceous chondrite (CO3)

Petrography: (A.E. Rubin, UCLA) Matrix abundance is ~45%, average chondrule diameter is ~200 μm. Most chondrules are type I porphyritic, consistent with a carbonaceous chondrite. Some small amoeboid olivine inclusions are present (~300 μm in diameter). Heterogeneity of olivine and abundant polysynthetically twinned low-Ca pyroxene are indicative of an unequilibrated chondrite. Chondrules are sharply defined.

Geochemistry: Mineral compositions and geochemistry: (A.E. Rubin, UCLA) Cr2O3 of ferroan olivine: 0.08±0.07 (n=11).
