(Northwest Africa)

Purchased: 2015 Mar

Classification: Angrite

History: Purchased by Scott Perekslis in March 2015 from a Moroccan dealer in Paris.

Petrography: (A. Irving and S. Kuehner, UWS) Recrystallized breccia composed of olivine (some in polygonal-textured aggregates), aluminous clinopyroxene (pinkish in thin section), spinel (purplish-brown in thin section), altered kamacite, troilite and sparse large anorthite clasts. Secondary iron hydroxides occur along grain boundaries.

Geochemistry: Olivine (Fa39.9-42.6, CaO = 0.9-1.4 wt.%, N = 4), clinopyroxene (Fs10.2-10.9Wo51.6-52.9, Al2O3 = 4.5-7.7 wt.%, TiO2 = 0.9-1.5 wt.%, N = 3), plagioclase (An99.2-99.3Or0.1, N = 2).

Classification: Angrite (breccia, metal-bearing). Paired with NWA 2999 and other stones.
