Stockyard Creek        23°15’20"S, 116°54’3"E

Western Australia, Australia

Found: 2008

Classification: Ordinary chondrite (H5)

History: A single stone was found by B. Crawford while he was prospecting. The stone was found within 4 km of the site of recovery of the Warden meteorite (MetBull 69)

Physical characteristics: (A. W. R. Bevan and P. J. Downes, WAM) The stone is an irregular, rounded mass weighing 2.7 kg and measuring 16 × 12 × 10 cm. The surface is 80% covered with fusion crust. Where the interior is exposed, it is iron stained and fresh metal particles are visible.

Petrography: (A. W. R. Bevan and P. J. Downes, WAM) Microscopically, recognizable chondrules, including barred olivine, porphyritic olivine and radiating pyroxene types, are set in a microcrystalline matrix. Accessory minerals include troilite, kamacite, taenite, tetrataenite and chromite.

Geochemistry: Mineral compositions and geochemistry: (A. W. R. Bevan and P. Downes, WAM) Olivine, Fa19.3; low-Ca orthopyroxene, Fs17.1 Wo1.1; chromite, Cr# 85 Fe# 83.6; kamacite, Ni=6.78, Co=0.51 (both wt%).
