Northwest Africa 13886 (NWA 13886)

(Northwest Africa)

Purchased: 2020

Classification: Carbonaceous chondrite (CO3)

Physical characteristics: A dark stone. Cut surface reveals a dark interior with small chondrules.

Petrography: (J. Gattacceca, CEREGE) Small chondrules (~150 µm in diameter) set in an abundant fine-grained iron-rich matrix. CAIs were observed in the studied section. Opaque minerals are metal and troilite. Terrestrial weathering is strong.

Geochemistry: Olivine Fa18.1±18.5, range Fa0.6-46.0 (n=15), Cr2O3 in ferroan olivine 0.30±0.14 (n=12). Low-Ca pyroxene Fs2.4±0.9Wo2.5±1.1 (n=3). Ca-pyroxene Fs19.9Wo42.8 (n=1). Defocalized matrix analyses FeO = 51.9±2.6 wt%, analytical total 85.2±2.2 (n=3).

Classification: Carbonaceous chondrite (CO3)

Specimens: Type specimen at CEREGE. Main mass with Labenne.
