Writeup from MN J23:
A 09317
The PTS is composed of olivine and elongate pyroxenes. Olivine generally shows dark appearance due to the presence of minute (<1 μm) inclusions (Fe metals). Grain boundaries of minerals are filled with gray materials (weathering products). Irregular carbonaceous materials occur in dark olivine. Olivine compositions vary widely (Fa20.0-1.0). Pyroxene compositions are Wo5.2-5.7En75.2-78.6Fs15.9-19.4. This meteorite is an ureilite.
