Writeup from MB 105:

Northwest Africa 10733 (NWA 10733)

(Northwest Africa)

Purchased: Apr 2016

Classification: HED achondrite (Howardite)

History: The meteorite was bought in 2016 from a meteorite dealer in Marrakesh, Morocco.

Petrography: The meteorite is a fragmental breccia of dominantly mineral and less abundant lithic clasts (fine and coarse grained basaltic, gabbroic, impact melt clasts) set into finer grained matrix. Main minerals are exsolved pyroxene, unequilibrated eucrite low-Ca pyroxene (Fs22.3-45.1Wo1.6-3.1, n=15), diogenetic orthopyroxene (10-15%) and calcic plagioclase. Accessory phases include chromite, silica, and FeNi metal.

Geochemistry: Pyroxene host to augite lamellae: Fs59.4±3.0Wo3±0.6 (Fs57.4-63.2Wo2.3-4.2, n=24, FeO/MnO=30-38); Ca-pyroxene: Fs32.1±2.2Wo38.2±2.7 (Fs28.3-36.6Wo32.9-42.4, n=12, FeO/MnO=27-39); diogenitic pyroxene: Fs25.6±0.8Wo3.6±0.4 (Fs24.2-27.1Wo3.2-4.4, n=8, FeO/MnO=31-35); calcic plagioclase: An88.2±5.1 (An78.8-93.5, n=15).
