Yamato 000137 (Y 000137)   

Antarctica

Found: 2000

Classification: Mesosiderite

Petrography and geochemistry: The PTS consists of ~80% silicate and ~30% FeNi metal. The silicate portion is composed of pyroxene fragments (up to ~0.3-2 mm) set in a recrystallized matrix of pyroxene and plagioclase. This rock is slightly shocked; pyroxene shows weak mottled extinction. Compositions of pyroxene range from Fs32.5-38.7 (average Fs34.9), and plagioclase from An87.6-89.3 (average = An88.9). This meteorite is a mesosiderite.
