Writeup from MB 105:

Catalina 151        ~25°14’S, ~69°43’W

Antofagasta, Chile

Find: 2014 Oct 25

Classification: Ordinary chondrite (LL3)

Physical characteristics: Crusted stone. Cut surface reveals a brownish interior with closely packed, well-delineated mm-sized chondrules.

Petrography: Closely packed chondrules with apparent diameter 700?510 μm (N=53). Chondrule mesostasis shows quenched texture. Many chondrules are rimmed with opaques (metal and sulfides) or 50 μm wide dust rims. A 7 mm large igneous inclusion is visible.

Geochemistry: Olivine Fa16.3±10.3 (Fa0.6-35.0, PMD 50%, N=22). Ferroan olivine has 0.11±0.08 wt% Cr2O3 (N=20). Orthopyroxene Fs12.4±1.4Wo1.4±1.9 (Fs2.0-29.3, PMD 71%, N=13). Magnetic susceptibility log χ (× 10-9 m3/kg) = 4.16.

Classification: LL3 with suggested sub-type of 3.2/3.3 from the Cr2O3 content of olivine and the scatter of olivine Fa and orthopyroxene Fs.

Specimens: 51 g and a polished section at CEREGE. Main mass at MMC.
