Writeup from MB 100:

Jiddat al Harasis 626 (JaH 626)        19°47.09’N, 55°57.55’E

Al Wusta, Oman

Found: April 2010

Classification: HED achondrite (Eucrite, polymict)

Petrography: (A. Irving and S. Kuehner, UWS): Polymict breccia composed of both basaltic eucrite and cumulate eucrite clasts plus related debris. Pigeonite of various compositions (some exhibiting exsolution lamellae of clinopyroxene within orthopyroxene), calcic plagioclase, silica polymorph, chromite, troilite and rare zircon. Plagioclase has been transformed by shock into aggregates of fine anisotropic blades in a subspherulitic texture, indicative of quenching from melt.

Geochemistry: Low-Ca pigeonite (Fs32.1-39.3Wo6.3-5.1; FeO/MnO=29.5-31.2), clinopyroxene exsolution lamellae (Fs30.6-33.5Wo31.9-29.8; FeO/MnO=30.7-31.0), pigeonite (Fs51.8Wo12.7; FeO/MnO=30.8).
