Found 1998 December 27

Carbonaceous chondrite (CK4/5)

A single stone of 10.09 g was found 1998 December 27 by an anonymous finder in the desert of Dar al Gani. Classification and mineralogy (A. Greshake, MNB, and M. Kurz, Kurz): exhibits typical texture with fine-grained and weakly recrystallized matrix dominating over chondrules and mineral fragments; olivine, Fa29.4, NiO up to 0.5 wt%;a low-Ca pyroxene, Fs25; Ca-pyroxene Wo46.5Fs8.7; ; contains Cr-rich magnetite; oxygen isotopes (I. Franchi and R. C. Greenwood, OU): δ17O = -3.99‰, δ18O = +0.39‰, Δ17O = -4.19‰ are in agreement with the classification as CK chondrite; low degree of shock; low degree of weathering. Specimens: type specimen, 2.4 g, plus one polished thin section, MNB, main mass, anonymous finder.
